Back Mountain Road Improvements – Dallas PA

Description

“WPA’s legacy is visible today in those and many other ways” in Wilkes-Barre. “Travel was made easier when the East End Boulevard was straightened out and crucial highway links in the Back Mountain and West Side areas were constructed, all by WPA workers.”
