Dixie Highway in Indiana

In 1914, Carl G. Fisher knew the time was right to promote the second transcontinental auto highway. Following the success of the Lincoln Highway, the Dixie Highway pushed the development of commerce and tourism for the southern states. The Dixie Highway system grew to include routes from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and Chicago to Miami Beach. In Indiana, the Dixie Highway became parts of Indiana 933, US 31, Indiana 25, Indiana 29, US 421, Indiana 37, and US 150. The dogleg from Chicago to Indiana became part of US 136.

Author Bio: In Dixie Highway in Indiana, authors Jan Shupert-Arick and Russell Rein weave together the impact of the Dixie Highway on the Hoosier state and highlight the significance of Hoosier Carl G. Fisher’s vision that inspired the nation’s auto transportation system. Shupert-Arick is a northern Indiana native; Rein is a native of Ypsilanti, Michigan. Both authors are past national officers of the Lincoln Highway Association. Shupert-Arick is the author of The Lincoln Highway across Indiana, published by Arcadia Publishing in 2009.
