America is constantly on the move. But much of this progress wouldn’t be possible without the nation’s network of interstate highways – crucial routes that are unfortunately being outgrown by heavy traffic, and falling apart under unexpected strain.

Also, in Chicago, IL - one the nation’s busiest transportation hub – two more interstate highways are getting complete makeovers. But will all these massive mega-structures be completed in time to handle an ever-increasing volume of traffic?
