Traffic jams have become history on 71st Street between Sheridan Road and Memorial Drive following a project to widen the street to six lanes. The project, which was funded by the 1994 bond issue, began in 1997 and was completed in 1998. This view is looking west from just east of 73rd East Avenue. The final phase of the overall widening project, Yale Avenue to Sheridan Road, is under way and should be completed later this year. Photograph taken May 29, 1999.
