My personal theory is that the more lanes on the interstates make for excellent runways and/or check points for the military.
Actualy the expressway system was call the "National Defense Highway System" I used to have a map that stated that. Also part of the mandate is that 1 mile out of 4 (I think) has to be straight and flat incase a runway is needed.
I was 1 mile in 5 below is a bit of info
