During the 1950s, a combination of factors contributed to the increased suburbanization of the American landscape. To meet the housing demand created by large numbers of soldiers returning from World War II, developers began building on the relatively empty outskirts of urban areas. The increasing popularity of the automobile, coupled with the 40,000 miles of expressway created by the 1956 Interstate Highway Act, allowed people to live in far-flung, low-density suburbs and still drive to their jobs in the city.
