The only question was whether the delays would come from the highway commission or from legal action by opponents of the Hiawatha route. Possible Setback Highway commission of- ficials warned last month a delay in accepting the route could sel the interstate proj- ect back a full year. Monday night lawyers for opponents of Ihe route, al- though stressing they weren't making threats, made it clear legal action would be taken if Ihe commission acceplcd the route. Hiawatha City Attorney Clinton Moyer said the con- troversy is "a legal quagmire of magnificent dimensions" and urged further study to prevent a court fight. Poorest Place "The courts are Ihe poorest possible place to settle this he said. "I can foresee far more delay if we end up going that way." Bill Riley, planning commis- sion member from Marion, said he voted for the route last month but would vote against it now for several rea- sons. He said cost was one factor, because the Hiawatha route would eventually require a three-mile stretch of highway to link thc interstate with a proposed circumferential road northwest of Cedar Rapids. The actual effect on resi- dents of North Twin Pines, who opposed a western alter- nate, needs more study, Riley said. He also said he was influenced by figures suhniil- Icd Monday by Hiawatha Mayor Dale Gulhridgc. 12 Signed Gtithridge said of 58 busi- ness men in his city, only 12 F.ignccl a letter favoring the Hiawatha route. Three of those 12 have sold their busin- esses and three others relocated, he said. Commis- sion members were told last month 05 percent of Hiawatha business men supported the route. Cedar Rapids Mayor Don Canney asked why Hiawatha did not raise more serious ob- jections earlier. The interstate has already been 13 ycars in development, he said. "I would like to see us get on with it." A lawyer representing oppo- nents in Hiawatha said his clients were not aware of the decision to go through Ilia- walha until relatively recent- ly. Legal Action He said legal action will definitely be taken if the com- mission approves thc Hia- watha route. R i c h a r d Phillips, Cedar liapids public improvements commissioner, said the route through IliawaHia has always been shown in Ihe major i striTls plan, and opponents have had many opportunities I to raise objections. i "How do wo keep cnn- linnally delaying the streets he asked. i- In Jin il i, ill, PIERSON'S ..l.Vn.
