Notes
Survey number HAER MT-66
Building/structure dates: 1915 initial construction
Significance: It contributed to the economic and political unification of Lincoln County by being the first road to link Troy and Libby that could be used with any degree of consistency. Its construction was stimulated by and contributed to emerging local, regional, and national interests in tourism. The highway is a major and early instance of federal aid for road building in Montana. The construction project was closely associated with Paul D. Pratt, who played an important role in early road construction in Lincoln County and Montana. Finally, the highway illustrates 1910s road construction techniques through varied topography.
