The Cape Vincent Eagle reported that the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) improved 11 roads in the town of Cape Vincent, New York. “All school bus, milk, and rural mail routes, the roads form an important part of the town’s highway system.” The project encompassed eight miles of road, and called for “grading, draining, placing base, trimming shoulders and ditches, surfacing and incidental appurtenant work.”
Roads improved included “Swamp, leading from [what was then known as] McWayne road southerly five-tenths of a mile.”
