Known also as "Mr. Highways of Minnesota", Orin L. Kipp was a leader in the formation of the Great River Road on the Mississippi and the Minnesota Highway Trunk system. He joined the Minnesota Highway department in 1916, prior to the establishment of the present trunk highway system, and until his retirement in 1955, every set of engineering plans for every construction project undertaken by the state throughout the entire history of the department, bore his signature and stamp of approval.

The Minnesota State park "O.L. Kipp State Park", now known as Great River Bluffs State park, in Winona county was named to honor his contributions in the creation of the state highway system.
