Improving Notoriously Bad Roads

BONDS FOR GOOD ROADS
New Kent Supervisors may Authorise
Issue of $10,000.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]

Roxbury. Va.. April 12.- A bond issue
of $10,000 is being considered by
the Board of Supervisors of New Kent
County, for the purpose of building
good roads. Charles City County,
which adjoins New Kent, will soon
issue bonds in the amount of $50,000
for road building. Never before in this
region has there been so much enthusiasm
for good roads and other public
improvements.
Post-Office Inspector Wall, of Washington,
has been here for the past week
going over two proposed new rural
free delivery routes, one in New Kent
twenty-four miles in length, with
seventy-seven families and 215
patrons, and the other in Charles
City, twenty-seven miles long, with 126
families and 318 patrons.
