                        June 19, 1941. Burlington Municipal Airport, WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project. This view shows the fill being made along the southerly boundary line of the east-west runway area. Note the hangar and Administration Building directly to the west in the background of the picture, also the boundary fence in the left foreground at the front of the slope. Several thousand cubic yards of filling was dumped in this area using materials excavated from the runway areas and other areas being cleared of small pines and scrub growth. This filling could not be used for any areas within the paved section because of the great amount of roots and stumps but was satisfactory for straightening the line on this area which would not be used for landing purposes and helped to eliminate a hazardous condition. The filling of this area will also assist in straightening the boundary lights when they are permanently installed. Dump truck seen in upper right corner.

This view is looking in a northwesterly direction near the intersection of the northerly end of the north-south runway. In the foreground at the right can be seen the cold plant mix asphalt pavement being constructed three inches in thickness on top of the asphalt emulsion soil stabilization base shown in the left half of the picture. Note the six wheel power graders used in spreading the plant mix.
