TOPOGRAPHY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DETERMINATE OF LOCATION. TWO OR MORE ALTERNATE ROUTES MUST BE STUDIED BY AIR SURVEY AND PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS BEFORE THE FINAL DECISION IS MADE. PLANS FOR THE COMPLETE HIGHWAY WILL CONSIDER THE REQUIREMENTS OF BOTH ROUTE AND REGION AS REGARDS AIR, RAIL, AND WATER TRANSPORTATION, TERMINAL AND ROADSIDE PARKING, PREVAILING LAND USE, AND WAYSIDE DEVELOPMENT IN GENERAL. HIGHWAYS MUST PROVIDE FOR THE ANTICIPATED SPREAD OF CITIES FOLLOWING THE WAR. /AUTHOR/
