A few years ago, I read somehwere that one of the Presidents, i forget which one, when US highways were being built, ordered that a certain number of them be built so that in case of a Third World War, they could be converted into runways. Is this fact or fiction?

Likely true, since this is done in a lot in other nations. You'll even see that some of their highways have markings for the pilots already.

Like in Germany. I believe they build the highways in such a way that then can support large military equipment too.

fact: when Eisenhower was inspecting how the Germans used the AutoBan for make shift airstips - when he became president - he put in the interstate system. after Germany used them to distribute its defense. it also facilitated germany's ability to move men and materials around faster than the Ally's... good idea - they brought it home...
