Traffic now is on the new eastbound lanes of 71st Street between Quincy and Victor avenues, and an asphalt detour connects the new pavement with the temporary pavement at Wheeling Avenue (shown here). The left lane of eastbound 71st Street remains closed on the new section. Crews soon will begin removing the old Joe Creek bridge. In the distance, the east approach to Lewis Avenue remains untouched, but that soon will change. Photograph taken January 13, 1985.
