RD-RP 1956 0705 ~ STATE OF ~:IONTANA (Ij '~'4;,4 HELENA June 12, 1956 Board of County Commissioners Jefferson County Boulder, Montana Gentlemen: RE: S-9 ( ) - Cardwell-Boulder I am sorry to report that the oiling of the Cardwell-Boulder project has made pogr pro.8:r~~~._T~~rogrammi!llLQf _the project_ is under way. We have the approval of the Highway Commissioners, and have sent the request on to the Bureau of Public Roads by special letter. To complete the pro- gramming, approval forms are enclosed for your approval. Please sign and return three copies to this office. If other things can be fixed up, it now seems doubtful if the programming, field investigation, plans, plans approval, etc., would permit the letting of the project in time to do the work this year. The big hurdle will be the lack of funds. Even after the 1957 fiscal year secondary funds are allocated to the county, Jefferson County will still be about $7,000 in the red. It is estimated the project will cost about $95,000; matching funds $40,850, less $10,000 county funds, leaves $30,850 to come from State Secondary road funds. This would put the county in the red about $38,000. Since we had committed ourselves to build the bridges at Cardwell in fiscal 1958, and have a 4.1 mile section south of the bridge in Madison County ready to let to contract this month, it is important nothing should interfere with the bridge project. There was talk of shortening the project, but it was decided it would make little difference. I Yours very truly, LWB :e Encls . SCOTT P.
