TKe Daily CKrenklit, TYnniity, December 20, 1931 Four-Lone Highway Near Kalama Due for Completion by January ion highway bond Issue, W. A. Bugge, state director of highways said Thursday the third and fourth lanes, for a distance of S',5 miles .between the Kalama river bridge and the Longview wye on the Pacific highway, are 80 percent completed. He said the paving work Is the first section . under the highway bond, issue. H'Mfher Is Factor The director explained that if weather continues mild, all paving will be completed so that traffic , can be turned upon the new four- lane ttretth sometime In January. Meanwhile, during paving operations the northbound traffic is being detoured from the Kalama river .to the wye on the old paved highway a short distance easterly from the existing highway, a n d . southbound travel flows with little Interruption on the existing two lanes, which are paralleled by the two new lanes. Contract for the paving: was awarded to Florito Brothers, Seattle, who started mixing operations November 14. Sand and gravel for Portland cement concrete is barged down the Columbia river daily from Portland and unloaded at the mlx- ,!ng plant at waters edge on the project. Bulk cement Is hauled from Portland In trucks especially ( built for that purpose. Contract price for the Improvement including, also, some channelization nt the Longvlew wye is 4363,618.

M Van Eaton of Kelso is resident engineer, Pro tram Is Huff The 1951 legislature enacted the bond Issue for (66,103,625, of which $49,500,000 in specified to be expended upon U. S. No. 99 for the primary purpose, of providing four- lane paving between the Interstate bridge at Vancouver and Elaine at the Canadian boundary, as far as the fund will go. Other projects than U. S. No. 99 to be benefited by the bond money are: U. S. No. 10, $4550,000 for adding paved lanes to approaches both sides of Sno- fjualmie pass; U. S. No. 410, $6,600,000 for a new bridge over the Columbia river between Pasco and Kennewick; $5,000,000 for market roads in the Columbia basin areas of Grant, Franklin and Adams counties, and $1,703,625 to retire bonds on the Agate Pass bridge and make it free of tolls. Contracts involving construction ana engineering amounting to more than $5,500,000 of the bond money have already been awarded since the fund became available in October! In addition, a heavy expenditure has been made In right-of- way for 'future projects embraced by the bond program. Five con- on U. S. No. 99. Other than the paving project they arc a grading project at Centralla, an under- crossing of the 6. P. k Is. railway and demolition of buildings on the Vancouver freeway, and an over- crossing structure over the .Great Northern railway Just south of Marysville. Plan 14BZ Cratrsch "Plans are maturing rapidly for other projects of the bond program for contracting in 1952," raid Bugge. "Ife program will spread over a four-year period with a fair. ly heavy list of grading, paving and bridge projects for 1652. The critical supply of Jteel in the na-' tlon during this national emergency threatens to slow up bridge construction temporarily. The National Production authority, which controls allotments of steel Is currently allotting scarcely more than 25 percent of highway needs of all states and the picture appears dark for several months to come," added Bugge. The director said, however, that paving and grading operations will be little affected by steel shortage but that completion of bridges is the key to opening some of the new sections of highway to travel after they have been graded and paved. Trim Turkey Prices for Yule By Associated Press Turkey prices were trimmed two to six cents a pound this week as frcid stores prepared lor the annual big upsurge of buying for Christmas The holiday gobblers now are at about the same general level as at Thanksgiving time, and within a few cents a pound higher than last year. v Chicken prices were up two to as much as six cents a pound in many places, ducks about u n c h a n g e d , lamb off slightly, beef and pork steady compared.with last weekend. Fresh cranberries. were a little higher than they were just before Thanksgiving day and in somewhat tighter supply than Is usual this time of year. Top grade eggs eased two to five cents a dozen, reflecting 'recent new declines at wholesale. Butter continued climbing in some markets, up as much as three cents a pound from last week -- but in other places levelled off at the highest rates since the summer of 1948. Of the fresh vegetables, only snap beans showed any notable price reduction Irom last weekend. Several were higher as shipments lightened, including lettuce, carrots, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, tb- mntoes and spinach. Most oranges were lower and fruit auctioneers said there would be plenty, at'reasonable prices, for the toes of those Christmas stockings. But grapefruit edged higher, and so did tangerines.
