A party of 16 surveyors, including four Americans, today began working out the path of a proposed Eilath-Asluj highway through the hill region of the central Negev. Work also has begun on a by-pass road intended to cut the road distance between Beersheba and Sodom, on the southern end of the Dead Sea.
