January 12, 1942. Hayward Street Improvements: This view shows Hayward Street looking north from the intersection of Catherine Street. The old curbs and gutters have been removed and broken up for use as telford base. A 6" drain tile has been installed on either side of the street three fee below grade of top of curb and one foot back of curb. The drainage trench has been backfilled with crushed stone to within one foot of the surface. Tar paper has been spread over the crushed stone before backfilling the remainder of the trench to prevent dirt from filtering down into the stone drain. A 6" sand cushion has been placed over the clay sub-base and an 8" telford stone base has been placed by hand on the sand cushion as seen in the foreground. On this telford course has been spread approximately two inches of 1 1/2" stone which will later be given a penetration of asphalt binder. The power shovel and crane with drop hammer can be seen in the distance excavating the old pavement and sub-base at the intersection of Howard Street. Two new catch basins were constructed at the intersection of Catherine Street to replace the two old ones. More information can be found at the UVM web site Historic Burlington Project, Burlington, Vermont (South of Pearl Street photographs from 1930s 1940s).

July 26, 1945. Howard Street Pavement and Sidewalk Project. This view was taken at the intersection of Pine Street looking easterly shows the excavation being made to receive the sand cushion and telford stone base. Note the condition of the old curb and gutter and sidewalk on the northerly side of the street, and the undertile drain being laid in the center of the street near the power shovel. Undertile drainage was also laid on both sides of the street back of the curb to provide proper drainage. The sub-base was soft blue clay and very unstable and full of moisture. It was necessary to stabilize this sub-base by mixing a layer of sand with the clay and treating with asphalt emulsion before the sand cushion and Telford Base could be placed as trucks could not pass over the base with a load of material without getting stuck.

Title:   Burlington Streets: Institute Road 

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

Date:  1946; 1946

February 11, 1946 Institute Road - Road Excavation and Street Widening Project This view was taken from a point on Institute Road near the gate leading to Bishop Hopkins Hall looking easterly toward North Ave. The rock excavation to be removed can be seen in the south portion of the highway. Note the rock also on the north side of the road which should be removed in order to develop the street for its full width. An appropriation of $2500.00 was made by the Board of Aldermen to pay for the cost of removing the rock excavation. The appropriation was made to the Park Department and the work is to be done by the Street Department. This appropriation covers only the estimated cost of rock excavation and depositing this extra rock for fill on the shoulder of the road where the street is to be widened by filling. An appropriation will have to be made later if this work is to be done.
