East Alton Asks ICC For Through Street EAST ALTON.—Mayor Charles Vanpreter reported today that a petition has been filed with Lhe Illinois Commerce Commission requesting permission to make Virginia avenue a through street. The petition filed v-ith the commission by Francis Manning, village attorney, came as the result of a local petition presented to the village council recently hy group of Virginia avenue residents. If the project is undertaken it •vould mean that Virginia avenue would be a through street from St. Louis avenue north. This would entail constructing either an overpass or underpass where he Big Four railroad tracks bisect Virginia avenue.
