||During AASHO's Annual Meeting in Miami Beach, FL, Administrator Rex Whitton announces the goal of completing 50 percent of the Interstate System by the end of 1964. He reminds State highway officials that they must keep their sights on the 1972 target date for completion of the System. "We need the enthusiastic support of the public for our highway program, support which I am sure can be gained by providing long usable sections of Interstate highways."|
