71st Street and Lewis Avenue looking west with many tall trees. Construction soon will begin on widening 71st Street to six lanes between Lewis Avenue and the Arkansas River bridge, and all of these trees will be removed for the project. According to the city of Tulsa, the first phase is split into two contracts. The first contract covers the portion from the bridge to Lewis Avenue, and the second contract, which will be awarded later this year, covers the east approach to the Lewis Avenue intersection. All work is scheduled for completion in 1985. Photograph taken July 20, 1984.
