surface between Windsor and White River Junction the rebuilding of a section of route 5 not far from Putney the relocation and construction of an old black top section of this route just south of Barton the widening of this main artery of travel north and south on the Connecticut river through Windsor and replacement of a dangerous narrow and crooked bridge north of St Johnsbury indicates that route 5 is undergoing a face lifting job of some proportions The five jobs mentioned above are costing in the neighborhood of $2000000 and gives evidence of the importance placed on making IT route 5 a modern traffic artery That route 5 up the Connecticut river is a very important artery of travel is evidenced by the fact that this route on the Vermont side of the river carries much of New north and south traffic route 3 being located as far east of the Connecticut as Nashua Manchester and Concord in New Hampshire One only needs to travel route 5 and note the number of cars carrying New Hampshire number plates to realize this fact Or one only needs to try the New Hampshire side of the Connecticut to realize why much New Hampshire traffic prefers to cross the river into Vermont and use our route 5 No other state in the Union we are told the size of Vermont has two trunk line routes traversing its entire length route 3 in New Hampshire is farther from route 5 than is New route 9 from Western route 7 Traffic counts on route 5 have always compared favorably with or better than the count on route 7 except at certain points influenced by local traffic from two largest cities This is perhaps why when Washington announced several years ago that it was considering building a military road to Canada chose IT route 5 Traffic on 5 is more evenly distributed The count near Brattleboro and the ears reporting at customs at Derby Line and Rock Island hear out the fact that IT route 5 carries a burden of traffic from the Massachusetts border to the Canadian line much heavier than west-side interests realize and demands every bit of attention it is getting But route 7 is not being neglected At the same time five and a fraction miles of resurfacing was announced north of Windsor 11 miles of resurfacing with hot mix bituminous sur face is announced on two sections of route 7 one near Arlington another south of St Albans All of which indicates that Vermont is mak'ig rapid progress toward a better and more adequate system of highways The contracts mentioned happen to be on IT routes in the state but one in touch with Vermont road building projects knows that the state is making headway toward closing gravel gaps and is otherwise improving secondary roads all over the state And there is every reason to believe the immediate future years will keep pace with or accelerate the present program Federal road monies are to be more plentiful and both candidates for governor favor bonding Vermont in order to match Federal appropriations and hasten the day when Vermont tan say it has adequate highways As Vermqnwidens ijifter the Connecticut swjngs eastward after receiving the Passumsfi' secondary roads which arc being improved tend to scatter traffic a hit more than below that point Route 102 continues up the Connecticut to Canaan route 114 branches off at Lyndonville and goes to Island Pond and Norton from West Burke route 5 A invites travel via Willoughby Lake northward and west of route 5 is interstate route 12 which joins route 5 at Barton and 12B which cuts through Craftshury Albany and Irasburg to Coventry tvhere it joins route 5 However one looks at it Vermont roads are being rapidly improved and the anticipated improvement in the immediately future years will place state highways in excellent condition It may not have any super highways such as other states brag but it will have a state-wide system of highways as good as any state in the nation We always reply that we like it and view it as a permanent home For in 1947 we were hunting permanence and certainty after much uncertainty and along with the rest of the world we still desire permanence and certainty today So we furnished the house and lived in it and the sheriff has stayed away from our door known happiness and sorrow here become a place much lived in and attained in our minds the permanence we desired About a year ago we first heard the state was mounting an attack on us Goths pushing bulldozers would invade from the west we were told driving a super-highway through us toward New York Citizens of arms-bearing age were mustered in meetings of protest where it was impossible to sift wild rumors from military intelligence The road would go here it would go there it would go anywhere Some people in the threatened zone of attack wanted to sell but nobody would buy One fellow stopped painting his house A few optimistic strategists figured our positions were secured by a large cemetery a half mile forward of us which also protected a wide azimuth of our left flank But a pessimist said he had it straight from the State House in Trenton that By CHARLES MERCER GLEN RIDGE OP) The spot where I am writing this may some day be in the middle of a six-lane highway Or maybe it will be beside the highway Or maybe the highway will be a block away And possibly the highway never will come this way at all The spot is my desk in our house After I got out of the Army in 1946 we lived in furnished rooms while we hunted and hunted for a home The places we could afford we did not like and the places we liked we could not afford Then one Sunday afternoon in 1947 we saw The House The land curved around it and nine big oaks stretched their arms about it and people had dwelt happily in it many years This is I said after been through it and learned the price this is my wife said we afford So we bought it and moved into it all our possessions a portable typewriter a portable radio and wedding gifts that never had been unpacked Since that time been told by various people that a nice house but: 1 We afford it much bigger than we need get a coronary working on all that lawn 4 trying to go around the cemetery and then hit us Everybody felt that a good clean death like having the highway driven straight through you was far better than the crippling wound of the highway creasing your property Nobody in short wanted to live by the side of the road and be a friend to man Well I wish I could report a courier had just galloped in from Trenton with a message there never will be a highway coming this way Actually no new word has come Actually as we were saying last night on the porch life like that Yet I can report some good news Nobody has talked about the highway in several months now That fellow has finished painting his home I have spread much fertilizer and top soil on our lawn Life goes on The good news around here I think is that people now feel absolute permanence is too much to ask in this or any time No one is bitter or hysterical about it any longer The sense of permanence must be in us and not in our house If it hits us move and begin again somewhere else If it misses us wide stay And as we said on the porch last night if it creases us we might just live beside the highway and be a friend to man New Hampshire Highway Death Toll For Year Is 35 CONCORD UP) With the addition of a fatality during the past week New 1954 highway death toll reached 35 yesterday seven more than on the same date of last year In 1952 25 persons had lost their lives in highway mishaps The weekly report of the state Motor
