Granite Street / Bridge Improvements – Montpelier VT

Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted improvement work on many of Montpelier’s bridges. The Granite Street Bridge was “given a new floor of four inch  creosoted yellow pine” in 1939. “The lumber was purchased by the W. P. A. Bond Issue …” Furthermore, with WPA efforts Granite Street was “regraded with surface of crushed granite and asphalt penetration.”
