An overview of the 71st Street project looking west from Columbia Avenue shows dirt work under way on the east approach and on the future westbound lanes of 71st Street between Lewis Avenue and the Joe Creek bridge. Traffic remains on temporary asphalt between Lewis and Wheeling avenues and on concrete between Wheeling and the Arkansas River. Girders have been erected on the westbound lanes of the Joe Creek bridge, and paving is under way between the bridge and the Arkansas River. Traffic on the Arkansas River bridge is two lanes on the eastbound bridge until the bridge's westbound approach is complete. Photograph taken April 5, 1985.
