Where Theme Park Would Go: This aerial view of Whittaker Road, center of picture, and I-94, upper right, shows the farmland site for the proposed $40-million "Space World" amusement park in Ypsilanti Township. The first phase of the park, which could be completed in 1980, will be located on the west side of Whittaker Road, shown in the upper center of the picture where the barn and silo are now visible. Later phases, to be finished over a 10-year period could be built on the land shown in the lower portion of the picture. The photograph, taken by News Chief Photographer Cecil Lockard, is facing west across Whittaker Road.

Bridge Work: The $530,000 Carpenter Road bridge project over I-94 in Pittsfield Township is nearing completion. The northern ramp to the bridge (left) is almost completed while the southern ramp (right) remains to be done. Traffic is heavy on the westbound lanes of I-94 as motorists weave through a maze of warning barrels around the construction project. The Carpenter Road bridge, closed for replacement in September 1975 is scheduled to reopen Nov. 1, according to project engineer John Aerts.

New Ypsilanti Construction: This aerial view looking east along the I-94 expressway shows three major construction sites. At the top, an arrow shows the location of a new 25,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on which construction will start next week. At the bottom, the letter "A" marks the recently completed Ypsilanti sewage treatment plant, and in the center, "B" indicates the Gault Village Shopping Center which will open soon.

Sewage Plant Progressing: This aerial view of the city's new sewage plant, located between I-94 and Ford Lake, shows the work about one-third completed. Nearby is the Grove St. overpass, which will soon be widened to permit the construction of a left-turn lane for traffic going from Ypsilanti onto a service drive and the eastbound Expressway lanes.

The tattered eight-year-old welcome sign located off the I-94 expressway may be making its exit soon. Ypsilanti Area Jaycees can no longer maintain it because a new state law stipulates that a sign of its size must be maintained by a municipality. So, Jaycees offered to donate it to Ypsilanti City and Township, but officials from both municipalities indicate they're not interested. The sign now faces condemnation by the state.

Freeway Adorned: This informal row of sunflowers, looking somewhat as though they had grown from seeds scattered from a fast-moving car, decorate the eastbound lane of I-94 just east of Carpenter Rd., visible here as an overpass.
