Milan Avenue Underpass Widening – Amherst OH

Description

The Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) furnished labor to widen Milan Avenue in Amherst, Ohio “at both sides of the … bridge.” Milan Avenue curves around its underpass with a railroad, and the work was necessary to soften the curves and improve safety.

The Amherst News-Times reported: “Other corners that were rounded are those in the immediate vicinity of the bridge near the depot. The corners of Mill and Tenney; Mill and West; Mill and Spring; and west and Maple were all widened considerably.”
