The federal Work Projects Administration worked to improve Marcourt Drive in Chappaqua [New Castle], New York during the 1930s.
One project, which cost about $7,300 (of which the WPA contributed about $4,500) was described by the WPA in its project rolls: “excavating, draining, and surfacing; constructing base and headwalls; and performing appurtenant and incidental work including installing water mains, hydrants, and valves.”
