This letter, dated December 16, 1952, from United States (US) Commissioner of Public Roads Thomas H. MacDonald to US Senator William Langer, is a reply to Langer's letter of December 10, in which Langer enclosed a copy of a resolution prepared by the McKenzie Country, ND Board of Commissioners, in which the Commissioners asked that a proposed road connecting the Fort Berthold Reservation to Highway no. 23 be constructed at federal expense.
In MacDonalds reply, he explains that a four-mile portion of the proposed road is in the Federal-aid highway system approved for North Dakota, but the state has not requested funding for it, and the remaining three miles are not included in the Federal-aid system, and thus not eligible for federal funding.
