Culvert V, 1940 WPA shield
The Work Projects Administration (WPA) project undertook grading and culvert construction efforts in Cimarron County along Oklahoma State Route 325, between Kenton and Boise City. As of 2018 more than 20 structures along this stretch of road bear a shield-shaped WPA imprint stamp.
What is known in an ODOT historic survey as structure ‘V’ bears a 1940 WPA stamp on its northeast superstructure. (The stamp is on the northeast side of the road, facing southwest.) The culvert is located on Route 325, east of Kenton, a driving distance of 8.8 miles.
