Hook Road Repaving – Bayonne NJ

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) repaved Hook Road in Bayonne, New Jersey in 1939. The Bayonne Times wrote:

“The most important part of the [larger WPA work project] is the repaving of the Hook road, which runs from Avenue I [no longer extant] to Lower Hook, a distance of more than one mile, leading to the Standard Oil and other Hook plants. The present brick road t the plants was built in 1904.”

25 men were given work on the Hook Road project.
