10/10/11 100 W, 4 I - + 4 - 3 What Did The Airport Area Look Like Back When?


In particular, what was the configuration of the roads and highways around Raleigh-Durham Airport, back before Interstate 40 was built? Here's a stab at answering that question. Here are two maps, one from 1953 (via North Carolina Maps) and one from 2011 (via Google maps). Four layers, with two levels of overlay. Kinda sorta works for now. Maybe someone has a map of the airport area from back in the day? Or can recall what the roads were, or even some of the buildings that were there? Click once or twice to enlarge:
