State tourism officials have named three new byways through the state, including the historic Jefferson Highway.
The route was first designated 100 years ago, envisioned as the north-south equivalent to the Lincoln Highway.
It runs from Winnipeg, Manitoba to New Orleans, following Highways 65 and 69 from Northwood to Lamoni in Iowa.
New markers will go up along the historic route in time for the 2018 tourism season.
Loring Miller of Leon in Decatur County is one of the project’s boosters.
