The Works Progress Administration (WPA) undertook improvement work on “public access roads” as part of a $1,704,036 project in several towns in Burlington County, in rough conjunction with development efforts at what was then Camp Dix. Work was sponsored by the New Jersey State Highway Department.
(Note: Work was stated to be in Springfield Township. This Burlington County entity is not to be confused with the Springfield Township located in Union County. For our purposes let’s just call it Jobstown.)
