The asphalt base has been installed on the new eastbound lanes of 71st Street at the Mingo Valley Expressway. Seventy-First Street will be the expressway's next terminus when it opens in 1989. In the background is the section of 71st Street that will be widened to six lanes through a project funded by the 1985 sales tax. The project, which includes widening the street to six lanes with a left-turn lane and improvements at 71st Street and Mingo Road, is scheduled to be complete by the time the expressway opens in 1989. Photograph taken June 13, 1988.
