McHugh: Part Two

McHugh: Part Two

We followed Old Highway 10 to the southeast and discovered the spot where it intersects with the present highway 10.  Note the double lanes crossing from right to left.  Traffic speeds by all day, oblivious to this passing lane.

This short stretch is right out in the open and visible from Highway 10 as you approach Detroit Lakes from the east.

This is our third gallery of stuff from the lost highway. Go back and read from the beginning.

  1. Looks like it had curb so it was probably built in the 20s or 30s. I believe the center lines were painted black back then. Back when this road was in use the speed would not have been 55 it couldn’t have been. If 2 trucks met on this road they would both have to straddle the shoulder which meant going over the curb. At 55mph that would be a very dangerous thing to do.
