FEOERALHIGHWAY Federal Highway Board Gave North Iowa, Another Federal Road. ttTTMBEE WILL BE CHANGED TO 169. Eventually (o be Widened and Will Receive More Federal Aid. Extends to InternaUoMl Falls. Port Dodge Messenger; State highway No. 16, a primary north and south road through Port Dodge, has been designated as a federal highway by the national board of engineers, L. M. O'Leary, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, announced today. Mr. O'Leary was informed by P. B. White of Ames, chief engineer of the state highway commission and member of the national board of engineers that No. 16, has been established as a federal, cross-country highway and hereafter will be entitled to the federal aid allowed for federal highway construction. No. 16 will connect with state highway No. 5, at "Bie lowa^Minnsssota line and state highway No. 29 at the Iowa-Missouri line, linking Kansas City and International Palls, Minnesota, with a 900-mile trunk road. Will be No. 169. The present state markings (No. 16 to Iowa) will be abandoned hi all three states, and the entire highway from Kansas City to International Palls will be known as TJ. S. highway No. 169. The new markings will be erected In the fall. Later the road will be extended from Kansas City to San Antonio, Texas, Increasing the highway by 1,000 miles and making it a complete cross-country trail. Making No. 16 a federal road places Algona at the junction of two TJ. 8. highways, an enviable location few American cities enjoy. Federal highway 'No. .18, east and west road through Algona, connects the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Besides furnishing excellent motoring facilities and giving ideal outlets in every direction, establishing No. 16 as • a federal road will bring the city double the amount of federal aid which engineers , predict will be spent on TJ. S. highways in,the near future, to relieve traffic congestion. '.Both No. 18 and No. 16 will be widened within a few years to afford an adequate, driving area: for federal highway traffic,'it.was said.' , ' : ,'y ,.*,V"4$Ui®&Iy Tetf U..S/Roads. , lowa^Mtanesota, and Missouri Chambers of f Commerce .for, several months .have sponsored a movement,to estab- , llsh No. 16 .as a federal highway. They ; received kittle encouragehment at first, .^however, because Iowa already had ten , "federal roads, five north -and south and 7flye'east'~and west. -, V Mr. White is one of the five members bf the national board of engineers, which is authorized to designate federal highways. Though Mr. White favored making No. 16 a TJ. 8. road there was little reason to believe the suggestion would meet with the approval of the other members of the board, since Iowa had more than its share of federal highway and others states have no more.
