Alexandria, Virginia: Eisenhower - The Highway PresidentPresident Dwight D. Eisenhower was instrumental in building the American interstate highway system. This large-than-life bronze of Ike in his Army general duds stands in a roundabout on Eisenhower Ave. He's probably thinking about how to replace it with an overpass and some feeder ramps.

This tribute to Dwight D. Eisenhower is located in Alexandria, VA in a roundabout intersecting Eisenhower Avenue and Holland Lane. DDE here is westward-facing, looking out across Eisenhower Ave. at just one of a near endless number of roads built under his administration.[Matthew Ryan, 05/25/2011]
Even though the statue is not specifically about Ike's highway-building prowess, you can stop to show your appreciation of America's 48,000 mile plus interstate system (the "Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways").
