"This is a statue of Lord Mi'ihen. Eight centuries ago, he founded a legion known today as the Crusaders. In just a few short years after their founding, their ranks grew throughout Spira. The maesters of Yevon feared an uprising and accused them of rebellion. So Lord Mi'ihen walked along this very road to go face their charges and refute them. He succeeded in winning the maesters' trust, and his legion became an arm of the Yevon clergy."
The road was named for Lord Mi'ihen, the founder of the Crusaders, then called the Crimson Blades, who walked down the old path on his way to Bevelle to answer the challenge that his group was a threat to Yevon. It is called a Highroad because of both its altitude in relation to Luca, and the fact that Mi'ihen walked the "Highroad" when he decided to face the maesters of Yevon instead of antagonizing them.
At the time before the Eternal Calm, the highroad is home to many fiends. People who need to cross the highroad would generally travel by chocobo, as it is safer than dealing with the fiends. However, even the chocobos are not entirely immune to the fiend activity, as the Chocobo Eater also roams the area. Yuna and her guardians defeat this monster on their way through the Road.
With Sin vanquished, the highroad becomes home to Iron Giants from the Thunder Plains and large, carnivorous birds. Travel by chocobo has been strayed from, with hovercrafts taking their place. In addition, the road is now covered in Al Bhedmachina, used as a defense mechanism against the fiend population.
