"Col." A. B. Fassett of the Warren
Construction Company has been in
Beaverton practically every day this
week hurrying the work of paving on
our streets along. He says that the
job will be completed next week and
that the next job is the Canyon Road.
The crews will tta from hern ti the
road and the grading crew will com
mence work early next week and hur
ry their job to completion.
On Monday he was accompanied by
J.C. Beck, a leading attorney of the
metropolis and owner of the Beck
building, who has property interests
here also. . He inspected the progress
being made, expressed pleasure at
the forward-looking appearance . of
the town, and "may decide to move
his building out here."
Work on the highway is making
good progress, although halted to
some extent by the necessity of mov
ing the camps and laying new track.
The concrete had been laid to the
center of Reedville Wednesday fore
noon when the machines were stop
ped and the camps moved to Aloha.
from which point the operations will
go forward until Beaverton is near
ly reached when the camps will be
moved again and the third lan of the
work completed. '-,
While the people othis section are
very much disappointed bv the fail-
ure to rush this work through in or
der that the present summer might see
some use of the new highway into
Portland, the prospects for its read
iness by the first of the year are of
a pleasing nature and the paving of
the Canyon Road in addition to the
new highway will make it of double
value to local people.
