JackieRabbit: The original purpose of the Interstate Highway System was military. It just happened that it would also be an improvement to our already existing US highway system. This is how Eisenhower spun it to get public support for what many were criticizing as a big government boondoggle.

Not really. It's just that to pass any big piece of legislation in the 50s, you put the words "defense" in the name of the bill.

/Ike wanted a network of highways. Detroit wanted a network of highways. The defense aspect, while potentially useful, was just a bonus.
