  5. Voyageur Highway

One More Thing -

Another commenter brought up something entirely different, yet the same.

"Would someone also mind explaining why seemingly every road in rural Goodhue County has the suffix "Boulevard"?"

Maybe the sign makers get paid per letter? Boulevard means street, doesn't it? Heck, I don't know, but I guess I have some research to do next week, don't I?
