In 1933-34, the Public Works Administration (PWA) paid for pavement repair and other unspecified improvements to a long segment of Good Hope Road SE, from Nichols Avenue (now Martin Luther King, Jr Avenue) to Naylor Road. The labor was very likely provided by Civil Works Administration (CWA) or other relief agency workers.
This roadwork is probably not discernible today, having been paved over several times.
