The wild west questions come again. This one was a bit tougher than
others, but the answer is out there if you look. Actually, you would
have to look in Wallace, Idaho.
Interstate 90 once ran through Wallace, Idaho. In Wallace, there was
a stoplight right in the interstate. It was the only stoplight on the
highway from Boston to Seattle. Many people consider the removal of
the light the final step in the completion of the Eisenhower Highway
Plan. When it was removed upon the building of a bypass, the people
of Wallace had a funeral ceremony, complete with 21-gun salute. The
light lays in state in a museum in Wallace.
