Arizona's Vintage Roads (Cary B. Todd)

From freeways to back roads, from historic buildings and remains of settlements to abandoned sections of roadway, Arizona's roads are full of history. The following site includes historic pictures of Arizona highways and associated buildings and sites.

Never Built Missouri 755 - Saint Louis, Missouri (Ben Prusia) (Page temporarily down)

Once a planned freeway loop around the west side of the central business district of Saint Louis, Missouri 755 (proposed Interstate 755) was never constructed as a freeway. What did come into existence are two sets of ramps from existing interstates into neighborhood streets. This page takes a look at the roadways.

U.S. Highway 460 - Saint Louis, Missouri (Ben Prusia) (Page temporarily down)

A stellar look at the former U.S. 460 roadway into the city from Illinois. Photographs included portions of the former cloverleaf ramp that once took an elevated U.S. 460 to its downtown terminus. Also depicted are photographs of the now closed U.S. 460 bridge over the Mississippi River.
