For 460 miles, the Lincoln cuts through the center of Iowa. Today, it is a Heritage Byway; much of it is now Highway-30, but some of the earliest sections remain charming, two-lane roads.</p><p>John Mazzello is Byway Coordinator with Prairie Rivers of Iowa.</p> Mon, 27 May 2013 11:26:33 +0000 Rick Fredericksen 21417 at http://iowapublicradio.org Lincoln Highway Centennial Tour to Converge in Midwest
