Road Improvements – Buena Vista Township NJ

Description

Poultry farmers in the villages of Richland and Milmay, of Buena Vista Township, New Jersey, pleaded to the township to improve the conditions of roads as “large flocks of chickens on these farms are faced with starvation because of the inability of any vehicles to penetrate the muddy and sodden thoroughfares.” 100 federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers were immediately reassigned by the township to improve the roads around Richland and Milmay, thus making them passable.
