Williamsport Sun: July 9, 1934 – Highway Crews Improve Parts of 29 Streets

Portions of 29 city streets, representing 10 miles of secondary roadway and located principally in East End or in Newberry, have been improved with crushed stone surfaces so far this summer by the municipal highway department. Twenty of the streets are in the East End, the 15th and 16th Wards, where work in former years

Portions of 29 city streets, representing 10 miles of secondary roadway and located principally in East End or in Newberry, have been improved with crushed stone surfaces so far this summer by the municipal highway department.

Twenty of the streets are in the East End, the 15th and 16th Wards, where work in former years was restarted because of a lack of storm sewers. Five are in Newberry and four in the northcentral part of the city.

Councilman George W. German, director of highways, explained today that improved street services must follow sewers. It is not profitable or economical, he pointed out, to put down an improved surface on streets that must be subsequently torn up for the installation for storm or sanitary sewers.

Highway crews have been marching steadily over Williamsport secondary road system with a trail of crushed stone that has already improved the most heavily traveled dirt streets.

They have finished their work so far this year on various sections of highways in the city.

Some of the sections improved include Sheridan Street, from Penn to Grove, Grove Street from Sheridan to Meade, Florence Street, from Grampian to Lundy’s Drive, the back farm road from Grampian to the city line, East Seventh Street from Market to Franklin, Hollywood Circle from First to Fifth Avenue and Vernon Avenue to Campbell from Vallamont Drive. Aubrey Place, from Seventh Avenue to Rose Street, Trenton Avenue, from Poplar to the Keystone Glue Company.
