Description

Author Edgar Browning presents a companion to his earlier book on construction of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, in which he covers a wide variety of other highway construction projects in the Keystone State. Hundreds of photographs, along with reproduced advertisements and trade journal articles, document the work of over sixty past and present contractors from the 1910s through 1970s. Grading and paving, bridge, tunnel and marine construction is shown on everything from city streets and rural roads to the Interstates, in the wide variety of terrain and conditions the state offers. Equipment rosters are presented for number of the projects.
