Request Additional detail - challenge of breaking new ground for roads (technical) and eminent domain
Proposing an idea for this article. Are there any experts who know about the following two subjects related to this article? - eminent domain - how much land did the government need to acquire to build this highway, and how did they go about it? - technical - is there another wiki article that can give high level detail about historic road building? The challenge of clearing stumps, draining/diverting water, removing organic top soil, putting in a solid road bed? Particularly with 1913's technology? Thanks for considering!
