Meeting Today Ft. Washington Way To Be Open This Summer? Or Not Until '61? BY GEORGE AMICK Enquirer Reporter A meeting this morning may determine whether the lagging Ft. Washington Way project Is ready for trafllc late this summer or not until 1961. The decision Is largely up to the Green Lines, whose Northern Kentucky buses operate over twin ramps between the Suspension Bridge and the Dixie Terminal. ' Green Line officials will meet with spokesmen for the State Highway Department; the Penker Construction Co., contractors for the $21 million distributor; the City of! Cincinnati, and the Property Owners Association. They will discuss possible re-routing of the buses so both the bus ramps can be torn down at once and both the new ones built simultaneously. The original agreement be tween the state and the bus company was that the present ramps be torn down and re built one at a time, so the buses would always have a direct connection to the upper level of the Terminal. Here's how the situation came about: The contract between the state and Penker called for mm:s y (OR TOO OLD) TO LEARN TO DANCE AT $(J.50 4 privet totioM 3 elon I MOM 1 practice ItttOM bed flsfaire DANCE STUDIOS 128 W. 5th MA 17888 0 ' the contractor to complete the project by June 30, 1960. But the project fell behind schedule. A Penker spokesman blamed last year's strike of structural steel-workers, plus bad luck on winter weather, for part of the delay. He declined to comment further. Now, the builders think part of the lost time can be recouped by changing the bus-ramp plan. If the present plan Is fol lowed, they say, it will take six to seven extra months to complete the project. Mean- while, traffic would have to be kept off the main east- bound and westbound ex pressway lanes beneath the ramps, and be limited to the four new distributor bridges Main, Walnut, Vine and Race Streets. But, they say, they can shave up to 20 weeks off this completion time by taking down both ramps at once. If all went well, this would re sult In full use of the distributor by late summer. Green Line, however, has the veto. It would have to agree to the necessary bus re-routing. Several possible re-routing schemes have been suggested. One would take buses off the Suspension Bridge In a wide loop, north on the new Main Street .distributor bridge and Main Street Itself to Fourth Street, west to Race Street, south on Race and across the new Race Street distributor bridge to the Suspension Bridge. Another proposal, for a narrower loop, would require that the new Walnut and Vine Street distributor bridges be opened only to buses. It would also require buses to travel one block on Third Street, going westbound against the one-way traffic flow. A spokesman for the com pany said last night he could make no comment until he had attended today's meeting and heard the proposals. "At this moment, I dont see any solution to the prob lem," he admitted.
