A sizable street paving project in Anchorage, Alaska was undertaken during the Great Depression with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds. The P.W.A. supplied a grant of $45,000 toward the project, whose total cost was $101,737. Work occurred between Dec. 1938 and Aug. 1939.
