BLYTHEVILti Kin'g Cotton Days Wider Pavements Speed Traffic on Blytheville Streets BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS. MONDAY, OCTOBER VV**/& -* 'f , if io. Q a- Better' Blytheville 7 .alle finally obtained the launching of one of the most-needed* iniprovemen Projects since the once-gumbo street* were lmplwemen paving. Fne major .horoughfares were scheduled for exnan fiom STf * « e r, 1 V' ! l 0r r ie ' a ^^ Um " widths to new w.dthV o Horn 30 to 50 feet In addition to easing tension on fraved nei vea of motorists, this project is calculated ticial effect on futuie growth of the city Major long-range effect aside" from generally easing the How of traffic will be the;creation of a city route" for Highway 61. This will allow motorists to pass through the business -district on thoroughfares as wide as the highway which now misses, the heart of the city. Widening of streets to provide this city route 1 is expected to be completed this fall, when work on expanding Ash Street .from Fifth to ;Dl\1sion (South Highway 61) Is finished. When completed, • motorist headed north on South Highway «1 could leave the highway at Ash Street, tnrn north on Fifth and proceed to chlckasawlM Arrant-, then turn west to rejoin Highway SI at Chickasawba and Sixth, this route woDld add only two blocks . to. the present route. • Technically this route through the city could be taken now by leaving the highway at Main Street but heavy traffic on Mam Stree —which also is Highway 18—tends to discourage motorists passing k through from leaving the highway _ At the same time widening o Ash Street and Chickasawba from Fourth to Sixth is expected to taki *ome of the traffic load off Main Street When Walnut Street also scheduled for widening from Fourth to; Division; It expanded, It also will absorb «om» of -the -Main' Street traffic. \ All to til, nearlj 25 per cent of the present traffic on Main Street is •xpected to to absorbed by these ' Chickasawba Avenue and Walnu and on the south side of Chlcka sa»ba between Fifth and Sixth Streets the sidewalks were lowered » P« v « nt accidents J? gher ^blne resulting --,... . . .- rtretto." Impnned drainage of streets and Improved handling of large trucks and bus traffic also I] expected It may be neit spring however before widening of Walnut Street and work on the north side of Chickasawba from Fourth to Sixth la'" started The Increased traffic ol the fall season Is expected to begin about the time Ash Street wori is completed and this will be followed by weather unfavorable for laying concrete. A Iwa noticeable effect ot the wider itreeta mav be a reduction hi the antipathy of manv persona - towir* Brjtheville'x narking meter*, for H te the*e devices which are footing the biggest part of the bin for broadening streets. About $14000 In parking meter JttuncM were earmarkeJ for street- ^wldenmg at the beginning of the program, when the. .general, fund was at a new low.'However, a heal- trrrinjeclion of some $30,000 in state tax refunds was received shortly after the work began and expanded the general fund to where It could b« safely tapped for road work. The parking meter revenue, nevertheless .remains the source that Is counted on to see the work through to completion. In about four months the meters will have paid for themselves and twice their monthly revenue will; be available for street work. At present, half the monthly, take goes to make payments on .the meters. Work on widening, ot .Walnut Street Is about'all that Is expected to be- left until next spring. Widening of Fifth SlreeVfrom Chlcka- ^awba to Ash his been corrple ed, Chickasawba between Fourth 'and Sixth has been expanded on the south side. East Main Extended Another major aspect of the atreet improvement program is , the extension of East Main street 128 feat This 128. feet of new concrete, was laJd 50 feet wide. The blacktop stretch 11 replaced was about 30 feet In width. Material for this work was provided by property owners ol that section and labor was furnished by the city. Extension of ™-. .v from the widening pr The street-widening work • earned on under the direction » the City Council's Street Conunit- her,, C Jo<lle Catea and Harry Tay- Mr Nakers reported (hat throughout the program the council received the cooperation of property owners. Neatly all cooperated from the beginning and •a*ny soon aw the benefits in the widening project. Man} shade trees "had to be moved to permit widening of these streets and it was m th> respect tliat the council fouhd 'such co operation gratifying ~ " ' sever*! poles used Jointly by the Arkansas-Missouri Power 60 and Southwestern Bell Telephone also had to be owed' At the Intersections ot Walnut and Aih with Fifth Street Co Main traffic signals were roofed to permit the widening The stop light at the intersection of Fifth andAwal- nut was changed from «n overhead fixture to the standard-type ; ilgnal on each oorner __ _ Another change brought about 'by the widening was a shift in rj«rking methods on Fifth Street between Main ant! Ash To get the full use of the ttreet, proyiEdna r were made for parallel parking "on both tides of the street in this block Plans for Triaenfrig- street* first took form nearly a year ago The need for wider streets was ^recognized long before the parking meter revenue became available. Need Widely Kecognaed In communitj betterment clinics conducted here last summer b\ the Arkansas Economic Council-State Chamber of Commerce 366 participants suggested atreet Improvements Of these H advocated widening of,streets *hd :•» others offered similar -suggestions under a combined proTam- of street and sidewalk improvements: The opening weeks of IMS saw another Improvement in the citys street system This was the erecting of street markers at each intersection A total of IS* street markers and five city limits signs were ordered and erected during :he last months of then Mayor E. S Jackson's administration *s the annual fall increase in raffic and: unfavorable weather »gan : shutting down street work or this year,; there were indications' that more will be undertaken next summer in addition to that already scheduled to be completed then Among the possible projects for text year ar* the widening of Main Street in the west end of the city, and—assuming some help from the fate—relocation of the route of Highway 18 to enter the west edge f the city and Join Main Street directly without angling around by 1st Street Main Street now provides parking areas in front of the buildings, many of them new, that formerly fronted on the narrower blacktop. A new crew was put on this Job ' 30 lhe work would not interfere with widening of Ash Street. A Negro crew had been added earlier this summer, making a total of three crews at work. A The Greyhound buses that roll "Bhrough Blytheville and stop at the depot on Fifth between Walnut and Main also -profited from the street widening. Their route i through the city now takes them-over the "city route" and drivers have praised trie wider streets that have ea«ed the handling Ot the large vehicle*. '.. Cognizant of this Irnpronment, the Dixie. Grey hound Lines regional office in Memphis notified lhe city, that the firm would help the program along by. paying for widening .of Fifth In front of the depot and offered as much money as was needed for this.
