Also see . . . Dixie Highway. The Dixie Highway, a network of roads connecting Canada to Florida in the early decades of the twentieth century, was an ambitious undertaking to build the nation's first north–south paved interstate highway. As late as 1915 Georgia boasted very few paved streets and no paved highways. Beginning in 1916 a new Central Dixie Highway was added, linking the Georgia towns Perry, Waycross, and Folkston, and then heading southward to Jacksonville.
