U. S. Highway 14

To the editor:

Moving freight to south and north,

Taking it to every coast,

Shifting goods both back and forth

Go the trucks that New Ulm boasts.

From this junction of two roads,

U.S. One Five and Fourteen,

Means New Ulm trucks haul the loads

Here and there and in between.

But where is the four-lane road

We were promised years ago?

Did the money we bestowed

To some other places go?

This new road would help us grow.

Industry and people move

To the place that says, “Hello!”

That’s the place that they approve.

Give us the new road as planned,

Then our businesses will soar.

Then New Ulm will grow; expand

Trucks will open up the door.
