Court House-South Dennis Road – Middle Township NJ

Description

An old unsatisfactory wagon road, connecting the village of Dennisville with Cape May Court House, New Jersey, was converted into a farm-to-market road in Middle Township, New Jersey, with approximately 100 federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers.

“The entire cost of the work is $33,425.00. Of this amount, the WPA will furnish $29,035, leaving $4,590 to be contributed by Middle Township. The project will continue for seven months.”

The road in question is most likely what is now known as Court House-South Dennis Road.
