Description

September 15, 1944. Pine Street Project, D.A. - W.I. No. 4, Burlington, Vermont. (Defense Area - War Industry No. 4) This project financed by the Federal Government as an Access Highway to a Defense Plant was handled and supervised through the Vermont State Highway Department. The construction work was done under contract by D. W. Overocker, General Contractor of Burlington, Vermont. The Pine Street Section of the Project consisted primarily of: - (a) Furnished and placed gravel base approximately 12 inches in depth over the entire length of this section from Howard Street to Flynn Ave. (b) Excavating sections near the intersection of Howard Street including the railroad crossing, the intersection of Lakeside Ave. and the intersection at Flynn Ave. where-ever the old pavement would not permit a minimum depth of 12 inches. (c) Furnishing and installing drainage pipes and constructing catch basins and cross culverts for surface drainage. (d) Constructing 3 inch mixed-in-place asphalt pavement 24 feet in width with 5 foot gravel shoulder on either side. (e) Reconstructing railroad crossing to Tuletex Plant (at expense of E. B. and A. C. Whiting Co.). This view shows item (e) railroad crossing during construction. Note 12 inch depth of forms placed on top of surface of old pavement and new rails and ties placed on top of old crossing which was left in place. Concrete was poured in one pouring with 12 inch depth. Note extra rail placed inside of main rail for flanfe protection. This view was taken at the intersection of the center line of the crossing with the westerly sidewalk. Note that the track has been raised at this point to allow for constructing the new track above the old crossing which was left in place as the old concrete street crosing extended.
