This wearing surface was placed 2 inches in thickness and tapered off on to the approaches at each end. The cost of this work was borne by the City of Winooski and City of Burlington sharing in the proportion of the grand list of each City and the State Highway Department. The State Highway Department paid for 4/5 of the total cost while the other fifth was divided between the two cities.
