In carrying out the improvements
the petition specifies, that the road
ffaded equal distances from
Williamsburg first; after the com
pletion of which, it shall be paved
\wth ^ater:b?und Macadam, begin
ning at Williamsburg and proceed
ing about equal distances NorUi and
South. In carrying out this plan,
the writer estimates that the funds
to be provided will be exhausted be
fore the other roads specified in the
petition are .reached. For this reas
on, no investigation of them was
made at this -time. -
The writer's -investigation de
velops the fact that it will not be
necessary to make any radical
changes in the location of the road
Hughart via Williamsburg to
the Falling Springs District line,
ihe present grades and alignment
are very good. Several loeai
changes are necessary, however,
-and iUie approximate estimate given
below includes these. These
