- Fruit for the upper valley is now being hauled over the new wood block pavement on North Wenatchee Avenue from Fifth Street to the Wenatchee Produce Co. warehouse. Contractor McNerney finished up to that point this noon and that portion of the job was accepted by the city inspectors and engineer. The laying of wood blocks is again progressing rapidly and will almost reach Second Street this evening. The asphalt crew is doing its best to keep up with the block laying crew but are having difficulty doing that. Concrete work is again being pushed rapidly with gravel once more coming in sufficient supply.
