Riverside Drive is open between 61st and 71st streets, which completes the first portion of new roadway. Peoria Avenue now intersects Riverside Drive north of 71st Street, so the former 71st Street and Peoria Avenue intersection is history. Traffic can travel along Riverside Drive at 45 mph between 71st and 56th streets, at which point the speed limit drops to 40 mph. Photograph taken August 3, 1986.
