Highland Road Improvements – Bridgton ME

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) surfaced and replaced the sidewalks on Highland Road in Bridgton ME.

According to a 1933 town report, on “Dec. 15 Fifty men to be employed on local CWA projects by next Saturday is the goal which is set for Bridgton, although the plan which has been adopted of selecting these men through the federal employment bureau instead of allowing the selection to be done locally, is handicapping the work some.

The first job to be started was the surfacing of Highland Road and tearing up the old sidewalk.”
