It is expected that the highway will be put in shape for winter travel. The grading work has been completed, and it Is expected that the strip will be rolled and spread with gravel before the middle of November. If it is found that It would not be advisable to apply the blacktop surfacing due to weather conditions, the com- pletMh of the job will be delayed until next spring. However, the graveled road will afford a hard surface for travel throughout the winter. The approximate cost of what is known as the Portland road will be about »2C.OOO. of whkh the county will pay $17,000 and the state $9,000.
