Modern farm equipment runs on software. But when manufacturers restrict access to the software tools needed to repair broken tractors, farmers are left out in the cold.

Their proposal is a new $37.4 million highway. Recent trends, however, suggest that traffic isn’t growing as quickly as had been anticipated, raising questions about whether the new highway is necessary.
