The west approach
This was arguably the most important intersection in the United State for many years. Known as "Reed-Niland Corner," it was the junction of The Lincoln Highway and the Jefferson Highway. The Lincoln Highway was America's first coast-to-coast highway and the Jefferson Highway traveled from Winnipeg to New Orleans. Charlie Reed's L&J Service operated here until 1966. The curved road behind the gas station is an entrance/exit ramp for this primitive highway interchange.
