 HistoryLink Essay: First part of Seattle Freeway (Interstate 5) route receives federal funding on October 1, 1957.

Objections to the freeway route were mainly from individuals concerned about their own property, although some questions about the wisdom of slicing through the tissue of the city were quietly aired.
