Request Additional detail - challenge of breaking new ground for roads (technical) and eminent domain[edit]

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!
