Carranza Road construction, WPA"Highlight," a WPA publication, January 1937 issue, page 41.
Access to the Carranza Memorial in Tabernacle, New Jersey was difficult prior to the advent of the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA). The WPA widened and reconstructed what had been a seven-foot-wide sand road, clearing brush and trees along the way. The end result was a 33-foot-wide graded road. The project was completed ca. May 1937.
