The Road That Created Florida-- Carl Fisher's Dixie Highway-- Part 2" US-1, US A1A

Continued from Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2016.

After US-1 was built in the 1920s, the Dixie Highway became known as the Old Dixie in Lake Park and Delray Beach.

Alternate A1A ran through Palm Beach Gardens and follows the Dixie Highway as it does in Riviera Beach, recently renamed the President Barack Obama Highway.

Over the years, the path of the Dixie Highway shuffled.  In Boca Raton, today's Dixie is on the east side of the tracks, but originally it was on the west side of them, now known as Southwest First Avenue.
