Attached you will find our second progress report on "A Bank Gravel Base Containing Calcium Chloride," by W.B. Drake. This project pertains to that portion of the Paducah-Eddyville Road (U.S. 62) extending from Kentucky Dam to Kuttawa. You are quite familiar with the road having visited it in company with Mr. Bray on August 13, this year and I believe most of the members of the Research Committee are familiar with it. Discussions following presentation of Report No. 1 on the project at our meeting last April would have accomplished that, but the road is better known for the number of failures that developed within the first year after its construction.
