Minnesota Highways

 

Minnesota Highways newsletter image

From cover February 1952 Minnesota Highways

 

By Anne Shelley

 

The MnDOT Library is pleased to announce the release of a new digital collection. Minnesota Highways, the monthly newsletter published by the Minnesota Department of Highways, is now available online. In nearly 300 issues from 1951-1976, Minnesota Highways documents the activities of the Minnesota Department of Highways, which was established in 1917 to build and manage state roads and bridges.

 

Minnesota Highways provides an in-depth perspective on the development of Minnesota’s transportation infrastructure during a time period when post-war funding authorizations provided for major transportation expansion at the national and state levels.

 

Minnesota Highways covers major highway projects that superseded the state’s freight rail system, improvements to secondary urban and rural roads, transportation safety campaigns, traffic fatality statistics, changes in transportation finance and policy, bridge and highway construction procedures, and technology developments. The newsletter also covers the activities of and includes writings by relevant state officials of the time.

 

Minnesota Highways features many photographs of notable structures, such as the St. Croix, Taylor’s Falls, and Hastings bridges, the Lowry Hill Tunnel, critical and innovatively-designed interchanges, scenic photographs of rural Minnesota, and aerial views of urban transportation projects.

 

Minnesota Reflections is a project of the Minnesota Digital Library. The collection contains more than 80,000 images, maps, and documents from more than 125 of the state’s cultural heritage organizations. Current funding for Minnesota Reflections comes from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund of the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment to the state’s constitution.
