1954 Moses-Tallamy Plan for Transcontinental Toll Highways

This is a May 4, 1954 letter from New York City planning czar Robert Moses and New York State Public Works Commissioner (and future Federal Highway Administrator) Bertram Tallamy to President Eisenhower’s Chief of Staff, Sherman Adams. The letter forwards Adams the Moses-Tallamy proposal for a $15 billion program to build continental toll highways, which the letter said had been discussed in Adams’ office earlier that year.
