Eastbound traffic builds on 51st Street near Harvard Avenue as shown in this view looking east from the eastbound I-44 exit ramp (signal). The ramp, which originally was matched up with the present entrance ramp on Harvard Avenue between I-44 and 51st Street, was relocated to 51st Street and opened in 1974 when the 51st Street and Harvard Avenue intersection was completed. Most of the traffic backup is for the eastbound left-turn lane, with a lot of the traffic entering the I-44 entrance ramp. On the left is a Quality Inn Motel, with Kmart, Safeway and the Fox Theatre (distant) on the right. At right is a U.S. 66 sign. Photograph taken April 15, 1983.
