Additional Details:
The greatest of all "Man-Made Wonders" over whose smooth surface millions have travelled since its opening. For two hundred and sixty miles - not a stop sign, traffic light, cross road or street, no grade over three percent which, instead of climbing over the peaks of the Alleghenies, dives through them in seven well-ventilated, well-illuminated tunnels. Throughout the entire length of the Turnpike Gasoline Service Stations and Restaurants are located on both sides of the roadway at staggered points. The Restaurants are most attractive and are operated by the famous Howard Johnson where good food can be obtained at reasonable prices.
