Proposed Eldridge And Jamestown Road]
Messrs. Fletcher and D. Baldwin were
before the board yesterday endeavoring
to get favorable action on opening anew
roadway from Eldridge to Jameetown.
The proposed road follows the section
line, as well as the N. P. track, closely all
the way, crossing the track about two
miles east of Eldridge and entering the
city limits near the Nierling farm and
crossing the Pipe Stem bridge at that
point. The new road would greatly
accommodate a number of farmers who
live along the traok and who at present
are requiredlo haul several milesfurther
by the roads at present used than the
new road will require. The cost of the
grading is not believed to be very great.
The board adopted the general provision
that all section lines are public highways.
