Two Parkway Jobs
And Two Highway
Hundreds Of Men Getting
Work On The Jobs Which
Will Provide Excellent
More than a million dollars
worth of road construction is now
underway near here, all of it wHl
serve this particular community.
The largest projects are the two
sections of the Parkway which
are under construction one at
Soco Gap and the other at Beech
Two state roads, running: into
several hundred thousand dollars
are also giving a large number of
men work. These jobs are on the
project from Soco Gap to Cherokee
and from Cruso to the top of the
mountain on the Brevard road.
The Parkway project at Beech
Gap was started a year ago, and
the grading has been completed to
the 600-foot tunnel, which has
been cut through the mountain.
From here, one of the best views in
the section can be had.
The other Parkway project at
Soco Gap, started about the first
of April, and splendid progress has
been made. Some of the largest
road equipment ever brought into
this section is now being used on
the job. There are three tunnels
in the seven miles.
, The state road from Soco Gap
to Cherokee, is scheduled to be
opened early this fall. This road
will put Cherokee about 12 miles
nearer this community, and givea
another motor loop through some
of the most scenic sections of this
end of the state,
A large crew of men are widening
and grading the road from Cruso
up the mountain on the Brevard
Highway. This 7-mile section Will
give an improved road all the way
to Brevard, and make it possible
to go from here to the county seat
of Transylvania in about an hour.
The enrpllees of the CCC camp
at Cataloochee have made several
major improvements on roads in
that area during the past year.
Taken as a whole, this county
has many splendid roads, which
gives many scenic drives, as well
as quick access to nearby counties.
All of this is another reason why
this is a' good community in which
