THE STEEL BRIDGE ROAD.
Plan for Improving the Road Which
Should Result in Some Effect
The special committee from the
chamber of commerce to take up with
the county authorities and with the
people along the route the working
and improvement of the upper steel
lridge road from the court house
to Saluda river-Newberry's part of
the direct road from Saluda Court
House to the city of Newberry-has,
with -the co-operation of the super
visor and the overseers and people
along the route, put into operation a
plan which should result in effective
- The chairman of this committee is
Dr. Van Smith. Some time ago Dr.
Smith called his committee together
and laid the plan before them, and
it met with their hearty approval.
Supervisor Feagle readily agreed to
lend his co-operation, and Dr. Smith
and Mr. John B. Mayes, of the com
mittee, accompanied by the super
visor, drove over the road on Wednes
day afternoon to the river and saw
the supervisor and the people along
the route, all of whom agreed to lend
their active aid and hearty encourage
The plan is for the overseers to
take the county's road scrape, and
scrape the road all the way to the
river, using the teams of the people
alnog the route, the people having of
fered the use of their teams for this
purpose, and then to haul sand and
rocks to places along the road need
ing them. after which the supervisor
has Promised to send the chain gang
to this road and finish the work.
The road on Wednesday afternoon
was found to be in fairly good condi
tion between certain points, but there
were.. some bad places which need im
mediate attention. The worst places
are where the clay needs to have some
sand mixed with it..the sandy portions
of the road being in fairly good con
dition-though the whole road would
be benefited by work.
Dr. Smith an I Mr. Mayes, accom
panied by Sup%rvisor Feagle. drove
along the road and talked to the over
seers and to the people living along
the roa.d. All the people who were
seen readily consented to give the use
of their teams .both for hauling the
scrape and for hauling sand and rocks
to places where they are needed along
the road, and to help in any other
way they could. The overseers
agreed that the plan was a good one,
and promised to push the work for
ward as rapidly as they can.
They were instructed by Super
'visog~ Feagle\to get tihe scrape at once.
The scrape is now near Mr. John C.
Neel 's residence, on the Prosperity
road. Dr. Smith suggested that they
use one team during the morning, and
then take a fresh team in the after
noon, and go straight to the iriver,
thus avoiding the waste of time
which is always the result when a lit
tle work is done here and a little work
As soon as the road is scraped, and
the sand and rocks hauled to it. Su
pervisor Feagle says that he will fol
low it up with the work which is need
ed by the chain gang, and will~do
some ploughing to mix thoroughly
the sand with the clay. If this is
done, and the road properly ditched,
the road can.be put in good condition.
Dr-. Smith and Mr. Mayes suggest
ed that while the work was being .done
that some of the hills ought to be cut
down. With very little grading some
bad hills could be considerably re
duced. A foot of earth taken from
the top of a hill and placed at its
foot will have the practical effect of
reducing the grade tw:o feet. and
while the work is being done on this
road, it would not be a difficult matter
to do some efe .'e grading.
The people :il along the road were
found to be heerrily in sympathy with
the move'menr fo>r the improvement of
the roaC. r.a expres.. themselves as
wiling do any:thing they could to
help. A:d not only tyv people living
diretly on the road, but several par
ties living off the road also agreed to
The eommittee felt very much en
couraged as a result of their trip, and
are hoping to see 'some good results
follow the putting of the plan into
The matter will also be brought to
the attention of the people on the Sa
luda side of the river.
The spec: l com'nittee from the
chamber of commerce having the
Newberry side of the road in charge
was appointed some time ago by Pres
ident Mayer, of the chamber of com
merce. At the same time other com
mittees for other roads in the county
Dr. Smith and Mr. Mayes, of the
steel bridge road committee, have
been very active in the work which
was assigned them, and it is hoped
that the road will be put in such con
dition as to be an object lesson, bring
ing aou improement on other roads
