Welcome to the official off ramp from www.us-highways.com. Newest links are added at the bottom of the list. I endorse all the linked sites as being worth your time, even if not all of them are highway related. Some of these sites simply caught my interest. If you find one of these links not functioning, or you add a link to my site, or if you know of a link that should be included here, please let me know. Remember, many search engines rank you in part by the sites that link to you. I want to encourage that by returning as many worthwhile links as possible.
