North Vietnam continued to expand and increase truck parks, storage areas, and supply depots along the main lines of communications (LOCs) south of the 20th parallel. There has also been a continuing effort to improve roads and construct bypasses in numerous areas south of the 20th parallel. Since early June the North Vietnamese have built two new road segments -- with a total length of 15 miles -- into the central portion of the DMZ. Work is also continuing on Route 1036, the new road started in January 1968 that runs from Dong Hoi in North Vietnam toward the western end of the DMZ. The road is now within a few hundred yards of the border.
