A ruin of the famous Route 66 in the state of Oklaoma.
In the 1920s and 1930s many roads in rural areas of the USA had a single paved lane, that was used in both direction. Drivers used to stop in the gravel shoulders to let pass the rare oncoming vehicles.

Some interesting Reichsautobahn shots:

1. Inauguration of the section Hamburg - Lübeck in 1937. Ceremony with cars of guests of the "General Inspector for the German Road Infrastructure", which will be followed by several buses of workers involved in the construction. Source



2. A piece of Reichsautobahn in the 1930's. Source does not state the exact location. Notice the cars with Third Reich registration and "D" decal.




3. And the famous "Reiseruf": the absence of mobile phones did not prevent the ingenious Germans from receiving calls on their way. The call was signposted along the way indicating the vehicle license plate and the telephone number to call. The driver could then stop at the rest area and call the number. Service station clerks were responsible of writing the information on the chalkboard.
The Reiseruf was launched in 1938 and discontinued with the beginning of the war in 1939. It was resumed in 1961 by radio announcements.
Source and complete story in Wikipedia.

Photo from 1938, showing the chalkboard on the median, titled "Fernruf für:" ("telephone call for:"), where registration number of targeted driver would be written below.

Is there somewhere in Germany (or Austria, Poland, Russia's Kaliningrad oblast) a stretch of Reichautobahn still preserved in its original shape? For example some short stretches that were bypassed by new allignments instead of being upgraded in site.

Is that road going to be reconstructed soon?
Anyway i found out that road infrastructure around Szczecin was very good compared to road infrastructure in other parts of Poland some 40 years ago.

Never realized urban plan for Rome from 1962:

The double black line was intended to be an urban motorway, while yellow and red areas were planned to be business districts with modern buildings.
