E Street NW Paving – Washington DC

Description

In 1941, the Washington Post reported the start of a $1,158,000 road paving program carried out by the Public Roads Administration division of the Federal Works Administration (FWA).

One of the streets slated to be paved was E Street between 21st and 22nd Streets, NW.

That stretch of E Street has been modified by subsequent construction of the E Street Expressway.
