North Bridgton Village Street – Bridgton ME

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) surfaced and replaced the sidewalks on Highland Road in Bridgton ME.

According to a 1933 town report, on “Dec. 15 Fifty men to be employed on local CWA projects by next Saturday is the goal which is set for Bridgton, although the plan which has been adopted of selecting these men through the federal employment bureau instead of allowing the selection to be done locally, is handicapping the work some.

[…] Monday of this week work was started on resurfacing the North Bridgton Village Street.”

“WPA EXPENDITURES ON PROJECTS LOCATED IN BRIDGTON FROM INCEPTION OF PROGRAM TO DECEMBER 31, 1938
2495…………Improvement of Roads………………………………………………………………$4,913”
