Florida is known for having one of the best highway networks in the country. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the agency responsible for most of it.  Check out this nice series of vintage construction photos and a nice retrospective article which provides a brief look at a century of milestones achieved by the Florida Department of Transportation. Happy birthday, FDOT!
