Long Description:
Noticeable on the west side of a concrete culvert is the date of '1944' stamped on the headwall and along railroad tracks. There is no date on the east side. It is slightly possible that this culvert was erected by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) as part of the 'New Deal' program enacted by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt to help get America's economy back into gear after the Great Depression. Most, if not all CCC camps were shut down after America's involvement in WWII, so the likelihood of this concrete culvert (and perhaps others in the area) being constructed by the CCC is slim but still possible. CCC camps were noted for dating many architectural structures they erected during their the New Deal period.
Year built or dedicated as indicated on the structure or plaque: 1944
