Norman MinetaKicking things off this morning for the AASHTO cross country convoy was our U. S. Secretary of Transportation, Norman Mineta.

Sec. Mineta is from California so this was a homecoming speech in a way. He spoke about then Lt. Col. Dwight Eisenhower’s historic trip in 1919 which showed the need for a road system in the U.S. and how we now have a system of highways that is the envy of the world.

I recorded Sec. Mineta’s comments which you can listen to here: Listen to MP3 Sec. Norman Mineta Speech (10 min MP3)
