Doing a cable program on the highway history is a perfect project, Holmes said, and he’s happy to have Ziolek on board.
“It’s one of those things, it’s a milestone year and then Dominic came into my life,” Holmes said.
The two are currently traveling here and there to do research, and talk to people who either worked on the project or remember details.
The project will include filming interviews, doing slide shows of old photos and also doing studio work to complete a finished project by the end of the summer to run on local cable.
Ziolek will work as many hours as he can keep him, Holmes added.
“We’ll be as good as Ken Burns,” he said.
For Ziolek, it’s a chance to learn a lot and the experience will look good on a future resume.
“I don’t have a chance to learn much local history at school,” he said. “I think this will be a very interesting summer for me.”
