Route 50 was the first highway built from coast to coast. It was given the title of “The Nations Backbone” by Time Magazine.
Route 50 followed the old wagon trails used by the pioneers. It brought prosperity to thousands of cities and towns across the USA that were inhabited by the early settlers of our country. The U. S. Interstate Highway system made Route 50 obsolete. With the NBC project using it as the route for our NBC Backbone, Route 50 will truly become “The Nation’s Backbone” again -- this time a Broadband Backbone. And it will bring prosperity back again to the communities along it’s path.
