The proposed road wpuld run
from Asheville through West Ashe
? ville, by Sandg Bottoms into Hen_
derson county and into Transylvania
county by the Boylston Route and
thence eto Brevard. ' The distance,
by this road , would be about 32
miles, whereas the present route via
Hendersonville to Brevard from
:s ' Asheville is about 43 miles. There
would be a saving of about 11 miles
between Ahse ville and Brevard. It
would also mean that Asheville will
be 11 miles nearer by motor from
* points South.
The road would pass through a
bout 8 miles of Henderson County. |
Ten miles of the road would be in I
Transylvania and 14 in Buncombe!
County. About two miles of hard- 1
surfaced road now in use in Transyl
van i ft, could be used by this route,
which leaves about 8 miles of hard
surfacing to be done in Transylva
nia if the proposed road goes thru. I
' Buncombe county has all but three
miles of the proposed route already
paved or contracted for. Hender
son is the only county that ha.?n't
part of the roiite already in shape. ,
Three committees appointed to re
present the three counties concern

WORK WILL BEGIN SOON? -
SURVEY MADE AND ACCEPTED
' , ON HORSE SHOE ROAD
In connection with the road work
in the county, a very important an
nouncement was made today by th?
county road board. The county^ has
been considering for some time the
condition of the Horse Shoe road,
leading to Brevard. This road has a
lot of travel and has been hard to \
The state -a couple or more years
ago made a survey of the road from'
Horse Shoe into ^own and this sur
vey did not meet with the dpprovil
of many property owners and many <
| other citizens of the"county who are i
?familiar with the topography of. the
section through which the road runs.
The matter was taken up by the
t present administration and the state
officials and the county 'officials
seems to have gotten together on a
substantial change. In fact, e new
survey has recently (been made, this
time by C. B. Turner, county road
engineer. After the survey the
State men and county men went
over it and after carefully consider
ing the matter the state r..." accep -
ed the new survey which will c.v..y
the new road along the present route
most of the way. Such changes as
are made under the new survey are
said to be absolutely necessary in
order to secure a' good road properly
located with relation to the great
majority of property owners.
The new survey is giving general
satisfaction to the people along the
route and in fact, practically all
property owners have given rights of
way for the road. Work in grad
ing and preparing the road for hard
surface will begin at an early date.
The action of the county road
board in determining to go forward
with this work is considered as a
mong the very important acts of
road policy in the county. Transyl
vania has built a hardsurfaced road
to the Henderson county line, and
is not only going forward in its own
road work. h,ut is having a grea'
deal of gon?truction done in its lim
it" by the state, so that with a good 'I
r\ nd between this city and Brevard i i
communication between ".ho count
