Broadway blacktop resur- acing, Alton Public Works Direc- or Paul A. Lenz said there now s a good chance for "a large part f the construction work to be done this year." Clearance of the MFT project by the Division of Highways is contingent on the city providing written assurance, before calling bids, that it has all needed construction easement in hand and also has arranged for any adjustments in utility services. In addition to blacktopping the present brick surface of Broadway from 4th and Pearl east to Sering Avenue, the project calls :or modernization of traffic signal lights within the S.'MO-foot distance covered by the improvement. Under the plans, as approved, the signal lights at the Owens- Illinois Glass Co. are to be removed and a channelization arrangement, with narrow traffic islands is to be substitutes to govern the tion there of new "fixed time" traffic signal equipment. The elimination of signal lights at Owen Illinois plant entrance, midway between Pearl and Washington Avenue, was called for by the state, Lenz explained, because he traffic count at that point showed an insufficient volume of traffic in and out of the plant to ustify stop lights under state regulations. Lenz said the information as to construction easements will be supplied without delay, and that ie will make every effort to secure approval for receipt of bids on the project before the Sept. 11 city council meeting. Section Excluded The project excludes the traffic plant. New flow in and out of the New Signal Lights automoatic traffic signal lights' are to be installed at the Washington-Broadway intersection along with a widening of the west side of the Washington intersection to a point 160 feet north of the north Broadway curbline. Present traffic lights at Broadway and Indiana are to be somewhat relocated with the installa- section of E. Broadway at and near the Main Street intersection re constructed more than a year ago Because of the many construe tion angles covered by the Broad way improvement, Lenz said mere is doubt that, even with an early award of a construciton con tract, that the whole project can be completed this season. Earl> fall cold weather would cut of | blacktopping for this year. How ever, Lenz said, many sections o the project to be blacktopped have no complicating construe tional features, and he will seek to get as much of the asphaltic resurfacing done this season as possible. For the last two weeks the city streets division has been engagec in renewing traffic lines on arter ial streets and state route extensions, and starting this week, said Street Supt. Lpcian Harris, crosswalk lines near schools will be renewed for protection of school children. With two exceptions, the double (yellow) centerlines on state route extensions have been remarked. The center lines remain to be renewed on Belle Street and Washington Avenue. Auto Blazes Alton firemen were called to extinguish an auto fire at the corner of Lincoln Street and Milton Road at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
