North Street in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania was constructed as a New Deal work relief project. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built the street to connect Ridge Avenue to the rapidly developing Canonsburg Town Park (and new pool). The work was conducted as part of a $20,000 appropriation that also served to improve the park.
