New Expressway Cutoff Opened: This $1,028,864 cutoff of the US-12 Expressway southeast of Ypsilanti was opened to traffic yesterday. The cutoff (center) carries through Expressway traffic from a point near McGregor Ave. to S. Harris Rd. (lower right). The former Expressway lanes (across center) will continue to be used for local area traffic. The project, slated for completion by Nov. 30, eliminates two sharp curves in the Expressway and shortens the actual travel distance by nearly two miles. Part of the West Willow Subdivision area is at top left.
