20-yrs span 1935 to 1955` 88% of it 66` then was two lane not divided and poorly lighted, and very open and rural in spans.. I'd say somewhere between ________ I really won't say, but cars of the day didn't have seat belts, or air bags, headlamps were not what they are today, safety dividers and guard rails were not found in several areas of the highway, and in Missouri and AZ. there were deep ravines and drop offs some as deep as 400 to 600-foot drops, some cars didn't even have turn signals or good tail-lamps, no padded dashboards, car door on early vehicles would pop open after one good bump or impact.. taking this in account, bad news to say the least.
