Description

November 14, 1939. WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project No. 65-1-12-43. View of extension of north-south runway looking northerly from the north end of the old hard surface section. The crushed stone armor coat in the foreground is nearly ready for the first application of Bitumuls HX quick break emulsion. Work is being carried on preparing the turning area at the extreme north end. This extension is 1,250 feet in length and 100 feet in width. The stone in the foreground has been placed for approximately 650 lineal feet. Hand "spotting" is being done on small areas to insure as near a perfect grade as possible using the stock pile shown at the right in the picture, with rubber tired wheelbarrows for transporting the stone over the surface.

Genre(s): photographs, black-and-white photographs
