Most of the right-of-way for this project, extending from Cedar Bayou Road to the city limits at Baker Road, will be SO feet wide. The thoroughfare will consist of two 24-foot-wide roadways separated by a 12 - foot esplanade. McEachem said enough openings will be provided in the esplanade to serve most of the businesses along North Main. Councilman Donnelly questioned the design of the street at the Midway Drive intersection. Autos moving onto North Main from Midway will not be able U> turn left. Traffic from the Fair Park Subdivision will enter North Main from Bob Smith Road in order to turn left. McEachem said, because of the offset between the Midway and Harold Lane intersections traffic at both intersections cannot be safely controlled with a signal light. The design was approved by unanimous action of the council, hut Donnelly said he reserved the right to argue some more cbout the need for a traffic light at the Mid-vay intersection.

Ail of ihe vast quantities ol styrene used In world-famous CYCOLAC® Brand ABS Plastic produced by Borg-Warner's fast-growing Marbon Chemical Division is made right here In Marbon's modern Baytown plant. And the case of every modern telephone 1$ made of tough, virtually unbreakable CYCOLAC®. That's why, in a way, nearly every phone call that you or any other American makes starts in Baytown. So does a great deal of the luggage Americans buy, for many famous, brands are made of rugged, lightweight Marbon CYCOLAC". The same holds true for the housing of radios, electric mixers, hair dryers, power mowers, typewriters, vacuum cleaners, power tools and electric tooth brushes. Automotive components, too. And golf club heads, musical instruments and plumbing fixtures. You name it — if a product {including yours) requires high-impact rigidity and light weight at low cost, then more likely than not it can be made better for less with CYCOLAC®. Needless to say Marbon is proud to be a part of Greater Houston's dynamic growth, it's Texas installation is one of the most efficient of Marbon's worldwide operations. This speaks highly of the Texas-grown personnel, whom Marbon proudly salutes. MO*OB Chemlcd Division, Bora-Wnmw Corporation, Wahlaston.
