By now most Freeporters are aware of the Start of the $7,000,000.00
R. R. Grade Crossing Elimination Program and that congestion and inconvenience
will be experienced during the two year period required for completion. However
individuals with understanding will readily realize the tremendous benefits that will
be enjoyed by the community later on. The current E. Merrick Road widening pro-gram
will do much to relieve some of this inconvenience and aid in the fluidity of
traffic. Paving work on this contract will be in progress very shortly after which
the Henry Street extension and widening of S. Main Street are scheduled.
