Multiple federal New Deal agencies, particularly the Works Progress Administration (WPA), assisted with the construction of municipal roads in Oxford, Mass. and North Oxford, Mass. during the 1930s.
The Report of the Selectman for the town for 1935 states: “… the extension of black surfaced roads, a greater mileage of which has been constructed than in any previous year due to the fact that much road work in the form of stone filled sections and gravelling [sic] has been done through the agencies of the C.W.A., E.R.A. and W.P.A. relief programs.”
