NEW SWEEPER GETS A WORKOUT: Leslie G. Bird is shown putting the city's new street sweeper through an experimental run. The new vehicle gives the city three sweepers, but one of the old models has been in operation for 12 years and is nearing its retirement. The new model is not radically different from the other two but it is vastly streamlined in contrast to earlier types that Bird has used in his approximately 30 years with the public works department.

Heat Tunnel Gouged Out: Workmen shore up sides of new University heating tunnel along the west side of Thompson between Williams and Jefferson which will deliver heat to the U-M's new $2,524,700 Administrative Offices Building now under construction. The tunnel will connect with another to the U-M's new Institute for Social Research Building at upper left. The tunnel will run along Thompson to just south of Jefferson where it will cross to the new building. Construction is expected to be completed in about five weeks, U-M officials say. The University has many construction projects in progress.

Bouvelard Fattened Up: Here's an aerial view of part of that section of W. Stadium Blvd. between S. Main St. and Pauline Blvd. which is being widened from two to four lanes. Like the part shown in front of Ann Arbor High School, the entire added width already is in use, although final surfacing work remains to be done. The city's plans call for Stadium eventually to be widened all the way to Maple Rd., with Maple also to be widened to Miller Ave. This view looks east.
