While Washington has viewed with in
creasing interest the development of cer
tain topographical Improvemtnts along the
line of much traveled road, an extensive
V work of construction and depression has
gone on elsewhere, apparently without its
2 knowledge. This is the extension of Massa
chusetts avenue from Belair Heights to
North Georg town, and the construction of
an enormous fill with a culvert over Rock
+ creek. The magnitude of this undertaking

4 c form In the arm of Rock creek an area so
c".. difficult of access that they have been
e_ practically unused.
When Massachusetts avenue is extended It
will connect this territory with all that
e part of Georgetown now reached by a ngr
row driveway known sentimentally as
e "Lovers' lane," and the whole district con
tiguous to the naval observatory grounds.
This tract, on the other side of the stream,
is as completely isolated for business pur
poses as that on the east side of the creek.
The effect of this extension, thea, will be
to connect, and at the same time afford
transport facilities to, two large and val
uable property holdings. Both are excep
tionally well situated. That on the east
side of the stream provides a logical ex
. pansion for the most fashionable section of
the northwest. That on the west side
offers the home builder the quiet and pri
vacy of the country almost in the very
_ heart of the city.
A Notable Engineering Task.
But the task of building this avenue of
communication is enormous. It involved
first, the reduction of a considerable grade
between the circle at 23d street and the
creek; second, the construction of a culvert
sufficient for the free passage of Rock
creek swollen to its greatest size; third,
the filling in of'a space over three hun
dred feet long, at one place sixty feet deep
and at the base of this fill one hundred ind
fifty feet wide; fourth, a cut through rock
and clay twelve arid fourteen feet deep 'n
