HEAVY DAMAGE TO COUNTY HIGHWAYS

Cost to Repair Roads Here is Estimated to Be $188,000

It will cost Maryland $188,000 to repair the damage caused to state highways in Washington County by subzero weather and by the floods, Dr. H E. Tabler, chairman of the State Roads Commission, said yesterday after he and Nathan L. Smith, chief engineer, completed a survey.

Damage to state highways in Western Maryland from frost boils and from the flood amounted to between $800,000 and $900,000. It will cost that much to restore the highways and prevent a recurrence of the damage from the sub-zero weather, it was stated. This estimate does not include the damage to secondary roads of the county.

A large force of State Roads workers are making repairs at two sections of the National Highway east and west of Hancock. The highway was badly undermined at the bridges, that cross Tonoloway and Sideling creeks, when those streams [?] last week. Rocks were used in filling in at these points.
