PATRICK H. HURLEY, Secretary of War.

Hon. JAMES S. PARKER,

Chairman Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce,

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

Washington, D. C., February 18, 1931.

House of Representatives.

DEAR MR. PARKER: Careful consideration has been given to the bill H. R. 17053, transmitted with your letter of February 13 with request for a report

thereon and such views relative thereto as the department might desire to communicate.

This bill would extend for one and three years, respectively, from March 1, 1931, the times for commencing and completing the construction of a bridge across the Ohio River, at or near Moundsville, W. Va., authorized to be built by the Moundsville Bridge Co. by act of Congress approved March 1, 1929. Routes on the system of Federal-aid highways approved for the States of Ohio and West Virignia parallel the Ohio River through the point indicated for the proposed bridge. An additional route on the West Virginia system of Federal-aid highways extends to Moundsville from easterly points in the State. Any bridge constructed at this point, therefore, would derive a very large share of its traffic from the system of Federal-aid highways. Furthermore, the Moundsville Bridge Co. already has had two years from March 1, 1929, within which to commence construction of the bridge, and, apparently, has been unable to arrange to proceed with its construction. It is the view of the department that no further extension of time should be granted. It, therefore, recommends against favorable action on the bill.

Sincerely,

C. V. MARVIN, Acting Secretary.
