In 1941, the Washington Post reported the start of a $1,158,000 road paving program carried out by the Public Roads Administration division of the Federal Works Administration (FWA).
One of the streets slated to be paved was 21st Street between Virginia Avenue and C Street, NW.
Although the street has been repaved since 1941, the New Deal played a role in its continued maintenance.
