M r. Germond has planned a road
which w ill be inexpensive in construc
tion considering the nature o f the
country through which the thorough
fa re is built, one which w ill cost but
little fo r upkeep and which can be
traveled a t a ll tim es o f the year a t a
grade o f less than tw o per cent fo r
the en tire distance. The route is con
sidered rem arkable fo r this one fe a
ture, as previou sly the road has reach
ed as high as tw en ty-five per cent,
w hile only a s lig h t deviation from the
present course brings It to grounds
over which a vehicle can tra vel w ith
practically no noticeable difference in
the grade o f the bed. On one stretch
about 1200 fe e t in length there is ab
solutely no change in levels, although
the surrounding country is very
rough. The road winds a good deal,
but on curves easily negotiated and
which adds rath er than detracts from
the beauty o f the highw ay.
The road is to be planked fo r the
entire tw o m iles according to present
p i.» ., and although no etsim ate has
been announced or prepared in any
w ay it is the b e lie f that the cost w ill
be between tw elve and fifteen thous
