Seven-Mile Stretch Of Road Up Pigeon Not In Immediate Road Projects Present indications are that the 7-mile unpaved section of Highway No. 276 to Brevard will remain un paved for sometime, according to a letter to this newspaper from A. II. Graham, chairman of the State Highway and Public Works Commission. Mr. Graham's letter was in answer to a question on the subject by the editor. Mr. Graham said: "We do not have in our immediate program the surface treating of the section of road between Brevard and Waynesville, but of course, realize the importance of this road and will reach same as soon as im proved economic conditions will permit." The commission has agreed to put the section of road in as good condition as possible for the Slate Press motorcade which will come from Brevard to Waynesville on September 13lh. The 7-mile section is the only remaining unpaved section be tween here and Brevard, a distance of 39 miles. The two towns and counties worked for years to get the road constructed, and the pav ing on this side has been "a prom ise" since about 1935. During the WPA era, crushed stone was placed on the road, and the curves widened, but no paving or surface treating has been done. As far as is known, Brevard and Waynesville arc the only coun ty seats in the state that are not connected by a paved highway. Civic leaders discussing the mat ter here this week pointed out that the "excuse" of lack of manpower or machinery to do the job was not a consistent reason, since many new projects have been started since 1935- in fact .some started right in this vicinity .since Janu ary, J94G.
