Penoshia 13 highway shield

Penoshia State Route 13 (abbreviated PEN-13) is a north-south state route maintained by the Transportation Department of the state of Penoshia. State Route 13's south end is at State Route 84 near Landry. Its north end is at State Route 63 in Benchford.


State Route 13 was first proposed in 1943. The 1943 plan had the route traveling from Starsville to Benchford. In 1947, another plan was presented. This plan had the route traveling from Eustace Highway (now part of State Route 84) to Benchford. The state chose to stick with the 1947 plan, since the 1943 plan would involve the road cutting through private property[1]. Construction began on May 2, 1948. It took seven years to complete the road, as the workers were rather lazy and wasted much time. The route was completed in 1955.

State Route 13 begins at State Route 84 in Marxe County, and travels northwest along a two-lane road toward the town of Landry. North of Landry, the route turns north briefly before turning northwest again. Upon entering Mofreesville, Route 13 widens to four travel lanes, plus a turning lane.
