General Logan Boulevard, a.k.a. “the old Weyman-Baptist Rd., which links Overbrook with the South Park sector, has been re-christened,” or, the “road from Saw Mill Run Boulevard to South Park,” was one road paved as part of New Deal efforts, sponsored by the Public Works Administration (PWA).
The road in question is likely what have since become Provost Road and Brownsville Road.
Pittsburgh Press: “Among the six miles of roads to be paved by PWA are the Allegheny River Blvd. extension, Ingomar Road, Buttermilk Hollow Rd., General Logan Blvd. to South Park, and part of the Ohio River Boulevard through Haysville and Glenfield.”
