The Congressional ' Actions
j Committee of the Perquimans
Coraty Chamber of Commerce
;y;'held a meeting Monday, July 15
to discuss the Hertfccd bypass;
The members stated in gen
eral that they were disappoint
ed that no information had been
ieht to Hereford in conjunction
with the progress the -Highway
Department was making or the
decisions, that . were being made
n regard to the bridge and by.
The committee objected to the
proposed site for a number of
reasons. They felt Ithat the
oridge would completely ruin the
beauty of the , river in one of
its most beautiful spots Nixon
Point and Crow Point. It would
greatly hinder baatinf oailino
and fishirff a'a it ic hoinn on
!future industrial nawi.rafi.1
trade west of the bridge.
- w ' MbuuAVAMS
The bypass would also fur
ther isolate such areas as Win
fall within the county as well as
isolate Hertford from a traffic
It Was suggested that the
Chamber ask Gilliam Wood and '
Merrill Evans to arrange to be
vai luimc. fti mis meeting it
is hoped that; many i questions
concerning the bridge and by
pass would be , answered, and
that the community could then'
make ' a "more educated -request,
to the Highway Commission.
One train-of thought Was thai '
it was illogical or the."'tate to' 3
construct a bypasjof ny of iU

that in the cas of, Hertford-further
