This story tells the story of Henry Ostermann, the Field Secretary for the LH . . . and here's his story:
"Chicago Heights, an important stop on the Lincoln Highway, is known as the “Crossroads of the Nation” for its famed intersection of the Lincoln and Dixie Highways. The McEldowny Bridge, where the Lincoln Highway crossed Thorn Creek, included the innovations of separate, protected pedestrian walkways and concrete lanterns, all welcomed features to meet the needs of heavier traffic on the Lincoln Highway. Henry C. Ostermann, the Lincoln Highway Association Field Secretary, crossed this bridge at least twice a year to inspect the new highway from coast-to-coast, driving an average of 15,000 miles per year."
