Abstract: The problems and symptoms of a non-uniform system of interstate transportation can manifest problems for both trade and military movement. The uniform and harmonious interstate highways based on states in the US has a direct connection to the non-uniform system of railways that the Austro-Hungarian Empire had during World War I under the command of Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf as Chief of Staff for the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the war. This non-uniform system meant that given different track widths and sustainable weights that some trains couldn t cross over between various states in the empire. In general, such problems still exist. Some historians attribute the inability to move troops around efficiently to one of the demises of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
