Legacy Projects > Lincoln Highway Byway Signs Lincoln Highway Byway Signs

In 1913 Hoosier Carl Fisher and his fellow board members named the route from Times Square to San Francisco. By 1928 the National Lincoln Highway Association had determined shorter routes across the country were possible in many states including Indiana. Thus, today we recognize and are proud of both a northern original route and a later, shorter alignment. We will be placing 170 signs marking the path of the two routes of the Lincoln Highway across northern Indiana.

The two routes are approximately 300 miles of highway in one direction so we are placing signs on average approximately every 3-4 miles of roadway. Many of the signs are in our great byway towns on the route where there are a number of turns. Travelers will enjoy the beauty of rural portions of the routes, explore the wonders of both small and large towns and villages along the route, and begin to understand our heritage and roots in the tourism and auto industries.
