South Main St. Improvements – Barre VT

Description

In 1934 the Emergency Relief Administration (E.R.A.) conducted the following improvement work along a part of South Main St. in the City of Barre:

The street was widened, curbings and gutters built, gravel sidewalks constructed and all banks carefully were carefully sloped and sodded. This is perhaps the best finished road work in the City.

The W.P.A. removed disused street car rails in 1939.
