Highway Paving Job is Almost Finished
According to reports given by the officials of the Highway Construction Company on the project here, the concrete pouring will be finished Saturday or Sunday of this week, unless the weather conditions interfere.
It is very probable that some of the men will be retained here until the first of December finishing the shoulders on the road and getting the equipment ready for shipment.
The new pavement will be opened to the public after three weeks, during which time the concrete is allowed to cure.

Pouring of Concrete on Highway Completed
Sunday evening the pouring of the concrete on the highway south to Durant was completed after many months of anxious waiting by those who desired to go to Durant and other of the cities along this highway.
As the last batch was mixed the workers all doffed their hats and buried them under a 10 inch layer of concrete. Perhaps they were as glad to complete the work as the citizens of our town are to have it completed.
Twenty-one days from last Sunday, the dirt will be removed from the concrete and it will be opened for traffic. The construction company is now at work building up the shoulders along the part of the road that has already been opened for traffic.
