Owensdale-Everson Road Boosters to Meet County Commissioners Tomorrow Automobile Carat tin of Citizens to Include Council and Itoad- IMMEDIATE WORK SOUGHT Tnxpayors of Dvemson and Upper Tyrone township want the mile and a 1 alf highway, A i onecting link from Owensdale to South Kversion, im- piovod. An automobile caravan of the cliti- xens of that locality, advocates of tho project, which is expected to include members of the borough council and tho township road supenisors, is to make a pilgrimage to "Uniontown Friday afternoon to confer with tho Fayetto countv commissioners In the hope of securing immediate at- tontion. It is tho contention of the people o 1 ' that section t h a t tho county has nover expended oin cent for roud construction iitt' KMrson, adding that the Ponnsville-Kvusoii thoroughfare was built by the State- Highway Department. It is tlnnr declaration that many routes pass * i t h l n close proximity of the borou ?h but none peno- tiate it and tho iissit that the county should give assistance in this project. The citize-ns hope to bring tho matter of tho much n-oedetl Improvement of that stretch oJ road to the attention of the commissioners in thc hope that work may start during the present season wl'eii so many men aie unemployed Some agitation concerning tho construction of this route has been under way for some time and It la hoped that as many as possible who are interested will uligu themselves with the boosters. The Owensdalo-Sonth Kverson roa/d project would be n grout benefit to th residents of the Morgan Valley, being a direct route through Broad Ford to ConnollHviHe. At one time It was the best highway to Connellwville but some years agt it went bad and hat been neglected, advocate* say. A now concrete soction was built that connects Owensdale with Board Ford and Connellsvllle but the section from Onensdale to Evorton is in a deplorable condition. The distance is said to be little more than a mile. With th-e improvement ot this thoroughfare connecting witb the bridge across Jacobs Creek at the east eat! of Fifth avenue, Scottdale, it would give another good road outlet to .Route No. 119 at Coimollsville, and ^provide betteir transjtortatlon facilities for the residents ol that neighborhood ·who want to travel to Connollsville to do their shopping.
