Commentary This article draws the readers' attention to the scale of the work at stake on section 2Y, with "some of the heaviest road machinery" being needed to build the road through a particularly rough environment. This clipping is one article among several which The Mountaineer would devote to the amount of machinery unloaded onto that segment of the Parkway during the time of its construction.
