The All-American road is on it's way to being greener than ever.

The Obama administration announced Thursday the establishment of 48 national electric vehicle charging corridors , covering nearly 25,000 miles, across 35 states and the District of Columbia.

This means electric vehicle drivers in these corridors can expect either an existing or planned charging station within every 50 miles, according to the Obama administration. New roadside signs were also unveiled to help motorists find stations -- similar to the way that gas stations signs do now.
