Persons desiring to go to Roaring Spring from the north or those desiring to come north from the southern part of Blair county, over the state highway section between Leamers- vllle and Roaring Spring, early next week will find it necessary to subject themselves to a detour. The detour will last all summer and is made necessary by reason of the rebuilding of the road between McKee and Roaring Spring, a distance of approximately one and one-half miles. Contractors Edwin H. and Lynn A. Brua, jr., announce the opening of operations the first of next week and the first thing they will do will be to blast down the two concrete bridges which the county some years ago erected across Cove creek, one at the southern end of McKee's gap and the other at Rodman. The bridges, while as good as new, are . inadequate in width and improperly located for the new roud. The destruction of these bridges will require that southbound traffic leave the road south of the old toll gate and follow the water grade road, paralleling Plum creek, through Dry gap and Plum creek valley to East Sharpsburg where it will again connect with the state road, permitting the motorist to return to Roaring Spring or continue southward. The detour, aside from being a dirt road, will not add any distance to through travel, the inconvenience being alone for Roaring Spring. As for the portion of the road from the point of beginning at McKee to the beginning of the detour, it will not be disturbed by the rebuilding as the new road will be on an entire new location. It will pass through the huge stacks of slag dumped from the Hartman quarry operations and back of the old toll gate house. Cove creek will be partially rechannelled as a result of the change. There will be several good-sized nils to make and several sizeable cuts notably at Rodman where a limestone bluff will be removed; portion of an old cinder dump taken away and further south a corner of an old stone quarry cut off. This will be one o: the most expensive pieces of road work undertaken in this county, bar ring the Cresson mountain route, for the cost will approximate $100,000 pel mile. The Brua brothers also have the contract for the state-county road from Good's lane to Alto-Reste burial park and work on the grading there wil start next week also. The final pouring of concrete on Penn street, Hollidaysburg, was com pleted at 5 o'clock last evening. Will the completion of the bricking of th space outside the rails of the trollej tracks, the fixing of the connection at converging streets, the cleaning o the new thoroughfare and the ripen ing of the concrete, it will be throw open for traffic likely within a wee' or ten days.
