The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) worked to improve 6.3 miles of farm-to-market road in the Town of Lyons, New York. On one part of the project, more than two dozen men were put to work reconstructing Pleasant Valley Road. The work enabled all-weather transportation along the improved roads.
