LETTER FROM STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION
CONCERNING DIXIE HIGHWAY.
Mr. R. N. Broadwater, Supervisor, and the Board, of County Commis
sioners, Edgefield, S. C.:
Gentlemen:-I am enclosing f0r your information report of survey
of the two proposed routes^for the proposed State Highway, which is
also to be a part of the Dixie Highway between Edenfield and Green
You will note from the report and estimates of cost that the Lime
stone route proves to be by far the superior route to construct and main
tain after it has been constructed.^
Based upon our previous conversation, which waa to the effect that
your county desired. Federal aid on the route which the investigation
and survey proved to be the best route to construct, I beg to advise that
this department has adopted the Limestone route to be a' part of the pro
posed State Highway system on which Federal aid funds can be expend
ed. We are now preparing plans to be submitted to the Washington
authorities for approval as a Federal aid project ofthat portion of the
Limestone route lying between Edgefield and Turkey Creek bridfie, be
ing about 8.5 miles in length.
It is my understanding that the remaining five miles of the Lime
stone route, which is between Turkey Creek and the Greenwood county
line, will be constructed by private subscriptions, and I understand that
the parties who will do this work aro anxious to start their portion of
this road immediately, and would like an engineer from this department
to set the grade stakes for their portion of the work. I am arranging to
send an engineer to Edgefield to stake out this work for you on Monday,
Please advise me immediately if this date will be satisfactory.
Yours very truly,
F. H. MURRAY,
