>-A>o<mo (lo.) Upptr Dei Melnei Thurtday, Jun» 17, 196*, 169 Rebuilding Job In Algona North Jones street (highway 169 through the city of Algona) has never been so badly beaten up following a spring thaw and heavy rainfall as it has this spring, according to Don Christensen of the State Highway Commission office here. It finally became necessary for state crews to tear a large hole, about a half-block long and 5 1/2 -6 feet deep in the block Just north of State street in an attempt to remove a bubble that kept the area, which has been fixed up umpteen times, pretty rough. In the photo above, a dragline, which was brought in from the state shop at Estherville, is shown loading dirt into a gravel truck during the excavation process a week ago. A small bulldozer was used to push the dirt into the hole so the dragline could better pick it up. A fleet of trucks began hauling in new gravel to fill the hole, which can be seen in the right foreground, later in the week, and when it is full, blacktop will be used to surface the portion of the street. With the exception of the dragline, all equipment used was from the local shop. It is hoped regular traffic can use the new portion of the highway late this week. (UDM Polaroid Photo).
