Road at Losey Airfield – Juana Díaz PR

Description

Youth employed by the National Youth Administration carried out work for a road fronting the Losey Airfield (today’s Fort Allen Airport).

“One of the important defense projects in puerto Rico is the construction of a military road fronting Losey Field. NYA boys quarry the stone, cart it by wheel-barrow and truck, lay it and aid in tar finishing; they also did preliminary excavation and ditch digging. The road is now almost completed. For its construction the boys have cut away and moved half a hill of stone.”
