The report continued: "Minimal Effect on Curb Parking Spaces: "The one-way operation does not require extensive removal of existing curb parking spaces. Platte Valley has 90 honor students bound and westbound directions. Under such volume conditions, signal progression timing is difficult on either street.

"Delays and vehicle stack- ups at intersections are expected to decrease as a result of improved speed and the reduced effect of left-turning vehicles. Left-turning vehicles are known to be the primary cause of delay and congestion at intersections on the existing two-way streets. "Reduced Accidents: "As previously mentioned, five of the 11 high-accident intersection in the city in 1972 Students sent home after tearing up motef COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A group of touring high school students from Dallas, Tex., were returned to their homes Tuesday night after some of them tore up their motel rooms here, Police Capt. Chuck Davis reported. The group of 197 seniors from Oak Cliff High School had stayed at the motel -- the Ramanda Inn -- Monday night. Davis quoted a chaperone as saying he "couldn't handle" the Igroup and told them (hey were [going to return to Dallas. The youths didn't want to leave, Davis said, and some of the boys "went to their rooms, and tore up drapes, beds and a television set." He said six rooms had heavy damage and eight other rooms had less serious damage. All the damage was done in rooms occupied by boys, he said. The girls in the lout group were housed in a different wing of jthe motel. Davis said the students were taken to the police department, but were released when officials at the Ramacla Inn decided to accept restitution. "We bought them 107 ham- Durgers and let them go back to Dallas," Davis said. "They gave us no problems." average were Kathy Andrews, Sandy Blehm, Teresa Bornhoff.

If two-way operations remain, in order to provide left-turn bays at intersections, it would be necessary to remove curb parking on both sides of the street in most places for at least 100 feet. For a four-legged intersection, this would mean eliminating 400 feet of curb parking spaces. "For all downtown intersections, the accumulation of parking removals would be substantial. "Reduced Interference from Angle Parking: "Angle parking on downtown streets is potentially hazardous, and unparking cars can block one traffic lane during their maneuvers. "With one-way operation, four traffic lanes would be provided. At least the two center lanes would not be blocked by cars pulling out of angle parking spaces, and traffic flow would be improved. "Disadvantages: "The disadvantages of the one-way street plan are that travel to some destinations in the downtown area will be more circuitous and inconvenient and that some driveways and parking lots will need to be changed." The report gave a preliminary estimate on the cost of converting the two streets into one-ways. The estimate was: Signal upgrading at 13 intersections, $156,500; signs, $4,100; pavement markings, $9,350; engineering, $19,000; and contingencies, $17,050; making a total of $206,000: A SPECIAL Let us prepare your weekend wardrobe for you!
