W, Day has ordered full speed ahead o« tlie ciDSStowH street engineering, survey -iti hopes thai a project for reconstruction of the hazardous 20th and Piasa (new Belle) Intersection can be set up for next year. An appropriation for tlie cross- tttwn survey by way of College, 20th and Madison avenues between Central and State Street, was ap* proved by City council at its last mdeling. • Atid at a forenoon conference in tlie mayor's office today, a directive Was given the city's project engineers to get'the survey tmdenyay as quickly as possible. Mayor Day said his chief interest in securing the crosstown survey is to inake possible elimination of hazards at the 20th and Piasa and tlie 20th < and Alby 'intersections. Completion of an Improved crosslown route may take years, but Day said that once the survey sets a route, portions of the project can be done a section al a time as special projects. He is proposing that, as a first section, the particularly hazardous 20th and Piasa intersection be reconstructed and will seek to get plans approved in time for such a project to be set on the city's motor fuel tax calendar for 1964. Relieving of the blind condition and providing for a better con nection to Madison Avenue, h e suggested, may require shifting Hie intersection ahd also the westernmost block of 20th somewhat to the north.
