History[edit]

Highway 175 was authorized in 1963 between U.S. 75 at Hallock and the North Dakota state line. The Highway 175 / Highway 5 bridge crossing the Red River at the state line was not completed until the late 1960s.[2]

The section of Highway 175 between U.S. 75 at Hallock and U.S. 59 in Hazelton Township was authorized in 1972.[2]

Highway 175 was paved by the late 1960s between Hallock and the state line after completion of the Red River bridge crossing. The section of 175 between Hallock and Hazelton Township had been paved prior to it becoming a state highway.[2]

State Highway 175 was numbered for its association with U.S. Highway 75.[2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Kittson County.
