Description

August 23, 1941. Burlington Municipal Airport, WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project. This view is taken on the centerline of the new diagonal runway looking southeasterly from a point near the boundary lights (shown in the foreground) on the easterly edge of the north-south runway area. Note the power shovel and trucks completing excavation of area in the "V" enclosed within the three runways. This area has just been cleared from the growth of small pine trees. The batter boards in the right and left foreground are located over the drainage ditch where the underground corrugated perforated tar coated metal culvert pipes have just been installed. The crew at the left is constructing a concrete catch basin on the drainage system. The grader and asphalt distributor in the background at the left are constructing soil stabilization base.
