VISIT AUSTIN'S NEW DIMENSION IN BANKING CONVENIENCE! Driving east from San Antonio on Interstate Highway 10 a motor ist will come Upon what looks not unlike rockets poised for takeoff on each side of the superhighway. But it's only an optical illusion. What he really sees are the roofs of the arbors for the first Safety Rest Area (roadside park) designed and built to Interstate standards in Texas. Texas Highway Department men in the San Antonio district refer to the new rest area as the "Jet Park." It does have a jet-age look. The design certainly belongs to the area because just to the north lies a big jet base Randolph Field, a landmark in the air age. The huge, new rest aree is really two parks, one on each side of the road. Each one is 1,200 feet long and 107 feet wide with four "bat wing" arbors spaced to allow for future additional arbors. Each arbor contains a fireplace, fire wood, an incinerator, a concrete table and benches, and a planter box. Safety rest areas on the Interstate Highway System are generally larger than older roadside parks previously built by the Highway Department and contain J0WS1IS 91.3 PERCENT OF '63 CHRYSLER OWNERS INTERVIEWED BY A NATIONAL MAGAZINE!

West 6th Street more arbors per park with an area on each side of the highway and parking space for trucks. Distance between rest areas will average only 37 miles throughout the state when the Interstate System is completed in 1972. So if you're traveling along and find one rest area filled, it will only be a few minutes to the next spot The new rest area was dedicated formally May 29 by chamber of commerce officials from Se-guin and San Antonio and members of the Texas Highway Department. Herbert C. Petry Jr., chairman of the Texas Highway Commission, was principal speaker. The orimary purpose of the safety rest area is to provide a safe place for a motorist to stop in pleasant surroundings to relax, refresh himself, or to eat something before continuing his drive. An alert driver has fewer accidents, and the Highway Department says providing rest areas is just one of many efforts to reduce the accident toll on highways. There are now more than 1,000 rest areas and turnouts throughout the State for this purpose. The Texas Highway Depart ment was one of the pioneers of the rest area or roadside park. In the early 1930s the department began its roadside park program, and it wasn't long before experience and public demand showed Department engineers that the areas should be an integral part of the highway system. When the Interstate Highway System is completed in Texas, there will be about 85 rest areas for the motoring public. The High way Department has already se lected sites for half the areas and about one-fourth of the 85 parks are in various stages of construction. The average distance between rest areas will be 37 miles so the motorist will be able to find a place to rest and relax no matter what part of the state he travels. There, are between 15 and 20 different designs for safety rest areas. Landscape architects in the Highway Department design each facility to its surrounding coun tryside, incorporating native stone and other materials. Highway Department mainten ance crews clean the parks at least once a week, water the plant and grass, and also plant trees and shrubs as part of the land scaping service.
