Highway 20 an all weather hard surfaced route across the United States from Boston. Mijlsachusetts to Yellowstone Park a distance of 2,386 miles. t)ue to its recent construction thrtsugh Nebraska and Wyoming it was laid out and engineered for fast trans-continental travel, sharp curves being eliminated and towns by-passed where possible. During the year 1942 portions of the Highway will be reconstructed and further improved but for the year of 1941 Highway 20 enjoys the distinction of being oae of the few east and west routes without a single detour. In 1940 the U. S. Bureau of Roads extended U. S. Highway 20 from the west entrance of Yellstone Park to Albany, Oregon, on the west coast. Through Idaho the Highway as recently marked will be located south of Sun Valley and will cut through the scenic Crater of the Moon Country of Idaho. The few remaining gaps of this extantion from Yellowstone Park through Idaho and Oregon to Al bany, Oregon, when completed will make U. S. Highway 20 the short est and most direct all weather route from coast to coast across the United States for Tourist and Commercial travel. At the close of the 1941 Tourist Season the National Highway 20 Association, representing cities and twons along, the line from Chicago, Illinois, to Albany, Oregon, will celebrate the completion of the Route with a 3 day convention. At this convention delegates will travel east from Albany, Oregon, and west from Chicago, Illinois, in car avan formation and meet at the city in Wyoming or Idaho design ated for the convention.
