Packard-Beakes Route: This map focuses on the center of the controversial Packard-Beakes bypass, which was approved by City Council last night. It shows the northerly connection with Beakes and Kingsley as one-way pairs, Beakes handling inbound traffic and Kingsley the outbound motorists. Beakes and Kingsley would connect with Ashley and First (at left) which would then connect with Packard south of the Man St. business district. Arrows on the map indicate the traffic pattern which will result when--and if--the bypass is completed. The dotted-in diagram in the upper half of the map is the proposed alternative bypass route proposed by the Model Cities Policy Board, a routing termed too expensive by city officials. The route which was approved was first proposed six years ago. (Story on Page 1)
