Originally published in the Star News, June 11, 1919

Twin Cities to Twin Cities - Minneapolis and St. Paul to Marinette and Menominie, straight across the State of Wisconsin, there should be built a federal trunk line highway, providing opportunity for rapid automobile travel from the Upper Mississippi to Upper Lake Michigan.

A route such as it proposed would pass, traveling eastward, through Hudson and new Richmond, Bloomer, Medford, Merrill and Antigo.

A number of existing roads would form part of it, but some new construction would be required, particularly through western Oconto county.
