Controversial Overpass Locations: This aerial view shows the two locations for a proposed bridge to carry traffic over the US-12 Expressway east of Grove Rd. in Ypsilanti township. The State Highway Department says it will construct an overpass (solid line) to connect Hull and Glenwood Aves. as soon as the Township Board approves the location. Residents of the area maintain the overpass should be built about 1,000 feet eastward and connect Harris Rd. (dotted line) across the Expressway. The large housing development at lower left is part of the Shady Knoll Subdivision.

Proposed Shopping Center Site: The outlined area shown here has been proposed as the site of the million-dollar shopping center in western Ypsilanti township, but the Township Zoning Board last night voted against approving a permissive zoning change. The 4.77-acre site is bounded on the north by Washtenaw Rd.; Hewitt Rd. (bottom) on the west and Rosedale Ave. on the east. Plans call for a 17-store center with parking for 304 cars. Developers may appeal the zoning board's action or build low-cost houses.

Will Be Annexed to Ypsilanti: This 88-acre area of vacant land has been released by the Ypsilanti Township Board for annexation to the city of Ypsilanti. Owned by dairyman Fred Palma, the property is slated to be formally annexed to Ypsilanti at a special City Council meeting this week or next. Councilmen has been scheduled to take final action tonight, but are awaiting an attorney's opinion. The area, Palma says, will be developed with a 335-home subdivision. It is bounded by W. Michigan Ave. (lower left), the divided Willow Run Expressway (right) and the present Ypsilanti limits, at top adjacent to the property's eastern boundary line. Annexation, which will mark the first major boundary change for Ypsilanti in nearly seven years, had been delayed pending the granting of a 60-foot utility easement across the property to the township.
