Highway US 40 crosses the center of Indiana east to west. It parallels Interstate 70 across the state. Even though US 40 is a 4-lane highway the interstate has taken most of its traffic away. But prior to these existing highways a 2-lane version of US 40 crossed the state. Snippets of that older road remain in a few spots of Indiana. I have been on most of them. It kindles the imagination to think of the traffic that existed in those days: the earliest cars, horses and carriages, walkers, maybe a few bicycles and hikers. Now these sections of road stand like ghosts of times past.
