  • U.S. Route 61 (US 61) is the official designation for a United States highway that runs 1,400 miles (2,300 km) from New Orleans, Louisiana, to the city of Wyoming, Minnesota. The highway generally follows the course of the Mississippi River, and is designated the Great River Road for much of its route. As of 2004, the highway's northern terminus in Wyoming, Minnesota is at an intersection with Interstate 35 (I-35). Prior to 1991, the highway extended north on what is now Minnesota State Highway 61 (MN 61) through Duluth to the Canada–US border near Grand Portage. Its southern terminus in New Orleans is at an intersection with Tulane Avenue at South Broad Street. The highway is often called "The Blues Highway", because of the course it takes from St. Paul to St. Louis, through Memphis, into the Mississippi Delta, and eventually ending in New Orleans. The route was an important south-north connection in the days before the interstate highway system. Many southerners traveled north along US 61 while going to St. Louis, Missouri and Saint Paul, Minnesota. The highway was also used in the title of Minnesota native Bob Dylan's album Highway 61 Revisited, and in the song of the same name, which imagines all sorts of fantastical events (including World War III) occurring alongside US 61. Other notable songs include a blues song recorded in 1957 by Sunnyland Slim; one in 1962 by Johnny Young; and a 1981 song, 61 Highway, by bluesman James "Son" Thomas. (en)
  • Der U.S. Highway 61 (auch U.S. Route 61, kurz US 61) ist ein United States Highway, der mit einer Länge von 2553 km (1400 Meilen) von New Orleans bis Wyoming, Minnesota führt. Der Highway folgt im Wesentlichen dem Verlauf des Mississippi und bildet einen Großteil der Great River Road. Seit 2004 mündet der Highway an seinem nördlichen Endpunkt in die Interstate 35 bei Wyoming im Bundesstaat Minnesota. In der Vergangenheit führte er weiter nach Norden durch die Stadt Duluth bis zur kanadischen Grenze bei Grand Portage. Heute verläuft die Minnesota State Route 61 dort entlang. Das südliche Ende bildet die Einmündung in den U.S. Highway 90 in der Mitte von New Orleans. Der Highway 61 wird oft als The Blues Highway bezeichnet, da er von Norden durch das Mississippi-Delta nach New Orleans führt, jene Regionen, in denen Blues und Jazz entstanden. In der Zeit vor der Errichtung der Interstate Highways war der Highway 61 eine wichtige Nord-Süd-Verbindung. Viele Südstaatler zog es auf dieser Straße nach St. Louis in Missouri oder weiter nördlich in die Twin Cities in Minnesota. Der Highway wurde auch von dem aus Duluth stammenden Bob Dylan in seinem Song Highway 61 Revisited besungen. (de)
  • La Ruta 61 (US Route 61 en inglés) es una Ruta Federal en los Estados Unidos. Recorre 2300 kilómetros desde Nueva Orleans, Luisiana a la ciudad de Wyoming, Minnesota. La carretera en general, sigue el curso del río Misisipi, y se le designa con el nombre de Great River Road durante gran parte de su recorrido. A partir de 2004, el término del norte de la carretera en Wyoming, Minnesota estaba en una intersección con la interestatal 35. Antes de 1991 la carretera se extendía al norte de lo que hoy es la MN 61 a través Duluth en la frontera de Estados Unidos y Canadá, cerca de Grand Portage, Minnesota. Su término meridional en Nueva Orleans se encuentra en una intersección con la avenida de Tulane en el sur de la calle Broad. La carretera es a menudo llamada "The Blues Highway", por el curso que sigue de Minnesota, a través de Memphis, Tennessee, y en Luisiana (a través de Baton Rouge y Nueva Orleans). El recorrido fue una importante vía de conexión norte-sur en los días previos al Sistema Interestatal de Autopistas. La carretera es usada en el título del álbum Highway 61 Revisited de Bob dylan y en la canción del mismo nombre, que imagina todo tipo de eventos fantásticos (incluyendo la Tercera Guerra Mundial) que se producen junto con la carretera 61. Por su parte, Robert Johnson se ha referido al cruce entre la Autopista 61 y la 49 como el lugar en el que vendió su alma al diablo. Elvis Presley creció en un barrio construido en las cercanías del lugar, mientras que Martin Luther King, Jr. fue asesinado en la terraza de un motel cercano a la Autopista 61. (es)

  • L'U.S. Route 61 è una strada a carattere nazionale statunitense che si estende per 2264,12 chilometri e collega New Orleans con Wyoming (Minnesota). L'autostrada segue in generale il corso del fiume Mississippi, ed è così chiamata anche la "strada del grande fiume" (Great River Road) per la maggior parte del suo percorso. Al 2004, il terminale più settentrionale (la città di Wyoming, Minnesota) si trova ad una intersezione con la Interstate 35. Prima del 1991, la U.S. Route 61 si estendeva a nord di quella che adesso è la MN 61, passando per Duluth, Minnesota, fino al confine internazionale con il Canada vicino a Grand Portage, Invece, il suo punto più meridionale, a New Orleans, interseca la Tulane Avenue con la South Broad Street. La strada è anche chiamata "the Blues Highway", proprio in virtù del suo percorso che attraversa gli stati considerati patria del genere musicale appena citato. La strada era un tempo un importante snodo nord-sud, prima della costruzione del sistema di autostrade inter-statali. Il nome dell'highway è stato inoltre utilizzato da Bob Dylan (nativo del Minnesota) per il suo album, Highway 61 Revisited, e per l'omonima canzone lì contenuta, che, con linguaggio immaginifico e surreale, presenta una lunga serie di eventi fantastici e ispirati alla tradizione ebraico-cristiana (la scena del sacrificio di Isacco viene posta dal cantautore proprio sull'Highway 61). Prima di ciò, Sunnyland Slim e Johnny Young registrarono una canzone blues proprio dedicata alla strada, rispettivamente nel 1957 e nel 1962. (it)
