The road project, which has been a state and county project is one of the best improvements yet to be made on this very Important link between East Juab county and West Millard county. The status of the present project at the present time Is: the first" tw miles extending west from the top of Dog Valley hill are graded and will be completely graveled by Monday. The stretch of road has received a good coating of gravel, and should hold up very well under the traffic that uses st the road. The next two miles extending toward the Brough ranch are being graded and If weather permits, will be completely graveled this winter. A good new fence has been constructed on both sides of the road part of the distance, and when this project Is completed, this section of four miles will help materially In bringing this road program to a completion. A contract for an additional $20,000 road project on this road will be let early next year, according to plans now set up by the State Road Commission. The building of the Nephl to Leamington road has been under way for about seven years, and each year, through the efforts of the Nephl Kiwanis club and other agencies In Nephi and West Millard county, there is another section o eventually the people built, of that area can traverse an oiled highway between Lynndyl, Leamington and Nephl. The business men of Nephi appreciate the efforts put forth by the board of county commissioners and the State Road Commission in their worthy efforts of building this much needed highway, which will bring West Millard county nearer to East Juab.
