Bronze medallions and concrete markers commemorates Lincoln Highway

Posted: Updated:

Brand new concrete markers are being installed to honor a 100 year old highway.

These commemorative markers have been popping up along sections of the Historic Lincoln Highway.

The markers encase bronze medallions that were specially designed for the 100th anniversary of the highway, which took place this year.

Tourism Director Jo Caskey says the markers are set in concrete to replicate the old concrete posts that stood along the highway one hundred years ago.
"There's a capstone on top and in the capstone is a medallion that says 'This highway is dedicated to Abraham Lincoln," said Caskey.
Similar markers have also been placed on segments of the original Lincoln Highway that runs through Bushnell and Dix.
