Back in Time

Rickie Longfellow was a Program Assistant in the Federal Highway Administration's Ohio Division Office. As a writer-editor for many years, she decided to combine her love of history with her interest in highways by writing a column, "Back in Time," for FHWA News. Ideas for the column come from her travels in the United States and around the world.

The Highway History page is pleased to make the "Back in Time" columns available in one place.
