The letting came soon after a del
egation from Haywood and Transyl
vania counties appealed in a special
hearing before Chairman 'of the Com
mission, Capus M. Waynick,
During the course of the hearinjr
the fact was brought out that an
other $100,(100 had been designated
for construction of pait of the road
on the Hay wtiixt county side of the
mountain.-' This com met i.s expected
to be awarded during August. Just
whether, the $10(1,1100 will be spent on
the si retch of road from Woodrow
to Springdalcdr on the mounta.in was
The highway has been put on the
Fedeial Road system, which is an as
surance that i: will be built. Mr.
Waynick" told the delegation Tuesday
that the commission had already com
mitted themselves- as "going ahead
anil building the eniiie road." The
point the delegation was most inter
ested in was 'when." To this quest
lion, Mr. Waynick gave assurance
thai as soon its funds w re available.
(lne of tin1 points made by the
delegation was the .fact that High
way No. 2H I goes through the 1'isyah
National Forest and also connects the
Park with Ihe Forest. It. was for
this reason that it. was put. on the
Federal Highway sys-tem.
The comimission is busy ibis week
making allotments of the funds for
the coming year, but it will be some
time before any delinifc amount, can
be .."ear marked" for the work on
this road. He did say, however, that
some of 'this year's funds would go
on No. 2S 1.
I was tin' oiiiiiion of the (dlicials .
that a total of approxinuitidy $500,-.
000 would be needed to 'complete the
road from Wavnosville to lirevard.
O'hers were of the opinion' that it
could be built, for much less.
Engineers have almost completed;
the. lield work tin . the entire road -and
ihe otltce work Will Ite completed ill
time for the Aigu"t meeting of the .
(pmmis-ion, the delegation was told.
The .nevv proposed route will be six
miles shorter than the present route,
making, the .distance about ,'i I miles.
Mr. Waynick promised the delega
tion that he and other members of
the commission would 'be' in the Way
ne.sville section within the next few".
Weeks, arid make a personal survey
of the road. The entire membership
of the commission later informed
Frank W. Miller, that thejr plans
were- virtually complete for tlie trip.
While the actual construction of
the road in Transylvania county will
get underway soon, it is the general
belief tbat it Will be- so met ime. before
the road all the way i.s completed.
After conferring with Mr. 'Waynick
on the matter, the delegation went
into de"fiil on the matter with R,
Getty Browning, locating engineer of
the highway commission. Mr. Brown
ing made the unsolicited statement
that in his opinion Highway No. 284
would be one of the, most important
"highway feeders to the Scenic
Parkway." .-. .
"iThere are scenes to be had from
the proposed new route of the high-.
way that cannot be found anywhere
else some measuring up to the many
views of the Parkway itself,'' he
"The peopje of North Carolina are
not fully aware of the value of the,
Parkway to this- state. I know that
when it is, completed that the people
will flock into North Carolina via this
route by the thousands it would be
impossible to even fence them out.
In Virginia there is a stretch of 27
miles of the road now ready, and
the cars literally pack the Entire
length of it at all times," he conclu.t

tion were not present in the after
