Oakland Highways & Freeways
Crossing 12 states, from California to New Jersey, the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor (LHHC) is a nationally recognized historic highway. Each state has its own chapter that organizes events, promotes museums and features landmarks for travelers of all ages to see. Lincoln Highway was the brainchild of Carl Fisher, a resident of Florida who was instrumental in the creation of the Indianapolis and Miami Beach NASCAR speedways. Fisher and some of his friends came up with the idea of a hand-surfaced road that would stretch from coast to coast in the shortest route. The Lincoln Highway spans 3,400 mi (5,440 km) across the United States.
