  History of the US Highway System
Before the Interstate Highway system brought fast, limited access highways to the United States, there was, and still remains, another nationwide system of highways that enabled travelers to follow standardized routes to any part of the nation.
The Lincoln Highway, from New York to San Francisco was the first and by the early 1920s many highway organizations were formed which placed and promoted their own routes.
It appears the original plan was for the Interstate Highways to be co-signed and routed with their corresponding US highway and from about 1960 to 1964 this is exactly what the Division of Highways did.

In the eastern United States, sections of some Interstate highways planned or built prior to 1956 are operated as toll roads, and are often called turnpikes.
Traffic lights are limited to toll booths (and toll booths are limited to grandfathered roads and bridges), draw bridges, and ramp meters (metered flow control) for lane merging during rush hours.

The list covers ways of identifying and assessing problems associated with regulation, ways of defining strategies for tackling these problems in accordance with established good practice, and ways of tackling important issues affecting the development of trucking and passenger public transport services.
