Title:   Burlington Streets: Lakeside Ave

Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

Date:  1945; 12-11; 1945; 12-11

December 11, 1945. City of Burlington, Vermont, Street Department Lakeside Ave. Pavement Base Construction This view was taken from a point near the intersection of Central Ave. looking easterly toward the underpass. Note that the temporary wearing surface had been constructed for the base after the work of mixing and stabilizing the base had been completed as shown in the picture under date of Dec. 5, 1945. This stage of construction was done to enable the street to be used during the winter and early spring without experiencing the troubles of early spring break-up of the old dirt and cinder street. The pavement will be completed in the summer of 1946. Note the crushed stone base placed in the driveway after regrading to meet new grades. To the left in background is the Blodgett Co.
