The partially completed bypass is' designed to relieve leavy Inter-city traffic ' on congested U.S: . H w y . 71. Drlginal plans called for the route to be placed In use before work started on widening Hwy. 71. - , Judge ,Lcstcr and county puichasing agent L, B, Gilbow m e t with Patterson at Charleston to discuss highway problems, plaguing this area. "One of the main'things we talked about'was'rejuvenating the Hwy. 265 by-pass," the judge said. "This project has comfe to'a standstill, and I want to get back on It and get something done." He called the by-pass project "one of the most important, pieces of work we need other lh#n the Hwy. 71 project." Judge Lester said he will schedule a meeting within the next week or so with Curtis P a n g e 1, district -Highway D e p a r t m e n t engineer a t Harrison, "to -go~ over the problems which stiH exist" In the bypass project. One of the major problems involves a one-mile'stretch just south of the intersection 'of ; Hwy. 264 with Hwy. 68, he said. Th a t stretch, relatively densely populated, has only a 60 foot right of-way, while the rest · of the. unfinished: by-pass has an BO foot right-of-way. The state will take an area with a 60 foot right of-way into jts system "only if the parrow stretch Is curbed and guttered, the judge said. That work would be*done at the state's cost, and the highway department isn't enthusiastic. The only alternatives are to acquire 20 feet additional right- of-way, , along the problem stretch or to convince the state to curb'and gutter the right-of- way as* it stands. Under present rules of- the Highway Department, the coUn ; ty is obligated 16 acquire rights- of-way where any improvement Is to be made in the county, a About 600 feet of the narrow road falls in the Springdale city limits, with thd rest of the mil«, in the county. : Judge Lester said ho hopes that momentum of the project will be 'speeded up once that and other problems are ironed oul. The half-finished 'by pass, about five and a half miles of it still unpaved, has been under way for about lour years. McGovern Maps New Campaign WEEKEND?
