State Nearly Half Done on Interstate CHICAGO (Special) — Illinois will soon have more than 700 of its 1,588 allotment of Interstate highway mileage open to traffic, Francis S. Lorenz, director of the State Department of Public Works and Buildings, announced today. In an address before tlie Chicago Metropolitan Chapter of the American Public Works Assn., Lorenz today said that highway engineers are studying means of speeding up completion of the Southwest Expressway which is part of the Interstate system. "The quicker we can get the Southwest Expressway completed and open to traffic the more lives we can expect to save," Lorenz said. "Records show that express- ways are many times safer than conventional city streets ard highways. Not only do they save lives by providing safet- travel but they also save time and money for the motorists using them." The Southwest route now under construction extends from Chicago's lake front area to a connection with U.S. 66 near Hinsdale. The entire route from the lake front to East St. Louis will carry the Interstate 55 shield when completed. Lorenz announced that an additional 13 miles of Interstate 80 from Ladd to Princeton will be opened to traffic on Sept. 30. This will give motorists in the Chicago area a 70-mile stretch of Interstate expressway from a junction with Interstate 55 west of Jollet to Princeton to travel on. Interstate 80 extends from San Francisco to New York. It enters Illinois in the Rock Island and Moline area and exits at a point near Hammond, Ind. Construction between Rock Island-Moline to Annawan has been completed and a 20-mile section between Annawan and Prince'on will bo completed next year. Construction of a high level bridge over the Des Plaines River at Joliet on Interstate 80 is now under way. Lorenz said the state expects to complete construction of the Springfield Bypass on Interstate 55 this fall. About six miles of the 15-mile $22 million project have been opened to traffic. An additional six-mile section of Interstate 70 between AHamont and St. Elmo has been opened to traffic. In the East St. Louis area on the same route the expressway has been opened to the Veterans Bridge crossing the Mississippi River this summef. In Southern Illinois additional mileage on Interstate 57, which extends from Cairo to Chicago, is expected to be opened this fall in the West Frankfort area. On Interstate 74, which extends from Danville to Rock Islant-Mo- jline by way of Champaign-Uf- bana, Bloomington, Peoria and Galesbtirg, a small section cf the highway in Peoria is scheduled to be opened to traffic late in the year. Meanwhile, the state has more than 100 additional miles on the Various Interstate routes under construction and in varying stages of completion, Lorenz jsaid. YOLK COLOR MATTERS MANHATTAN, Kan. #-Does the color of the yolk make any difference to egg buyers? Dr. Quenttn Banks, Kansas State University marketing economist, reports that a sample survey in St. Louis, showed 45 per cent of the customers preferred eggs with orange yolks over those that are lemon color. The remaining 55 per cent were evenly divided between dark and light- color yolks. Banks said the study suggested egg sales could be boosted if cartons were labeled to show what color yolks the eggs had.
