almost the entire route with the excep

and Toledo. Here two routes have
been proposed one by way of Simpson
creek, which is the present traveled
route, the other a proposed water grade

water grade seems to be the building

Work on the Toledo-Siletz road is

the grading being done. It is expected

miscellaneous equipment, such as fres

use of the tractors for grading as com

grading is more economical.
