Road Repair – Kensington NH

Description

Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) labor conducted road repair work in Kensington, New Hampshire during the Great Depression.

1936
“We were faced last spring by badly damaged roads due to rains of flood propensities that ruined nearly every hill and damaged other roads generally. We were fortunate in securing aid from the State to help repair this damage. We have had a lack of snow this
winter but the damage done to the roads by abnormal rainfall would make the snow much cheaper to have had. We will however repair some of these damaged roads much better than they were before, through a W.P.A. project that is now in progress.”

1937
Outlay for New Construction and Permanent Improvements:
Highways and Bridges
W. P. A —— $937.54.
13 men employed
