Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted multiple farm-to-market road construction projects, including a seven-mile project “which begins at a point 11 miles east of Marlow on Highway 29 and extends four miles south, thence three miles east.” That stretch of road entailed constructing 23 bridges and culverts. Living New Deal believes this project to refer to N 2940 Road (four miles south) and E Stephens County Rd 1680 (three miles east); however, no bridges or culverts are directly visible from satellite imagery or Google Street View.
