NOTES OF PROGRESS.
Empire-Paraiso Highway Open.
The section of the transisthmian highway
between Paraiso and Empire has been com-
pleted and is open to traffic. It is 18,302 feet
long, 18 feet wide on the sub-grade, and has
a metaled surface 12 feet wide. It runs
along the east side of Culebra Cut from the
suspension bridge at Empire to a point oppo-
site Culebra, where it turns eastward in order
to run back of Gold Hill into Paraiso. Work
on the section to join Paraiso with Corozal
has been resumed, and when this link is com-
pleted there will be a wagon road from Pana-
ma to Gorgona, nearly half-way across the
The Empire-Paraiso road was built by
penitentiary convicts under the direction of
the municipal engineering section of the Cen-
tral Division. They excavated 17,457 cubic
yards of material for the sub-grade and placed
all the metal, 8,650 feet of the length being
covered with 2,563 cubic yards of gravel, and
9,652 feet with 2,860 cubic yards of stone.
The prisoners were 53 days in preparing the
sub-grade, collecting from the sides of the
road, breaking, and spreading the stone.
