Beginning in 1913, the highway, with its terminuses at New York City and ["San Francisco"], saw dozens of communities battle over the routing of this first national road. Within the following decade, other highways were designated, and new routes were devised by local, regional, and state supporters vying for federal, state, and tourist dollars.
