in the successof such j a project K W James chief design engin eer for the bureau who undertook i the study points out that a parlc 1 way in the Teal sense of the word is more than a fine boulevard or landscaped city street It is a high speed arterial high Way flanked by park landscaping and is not a part of the regular uity street network Its principal func tion is to provide an arterial high tyay combined with the aesthetic benefits of a park The successful parkway in James opinion must be free from I intersections at grade with other j traffic Jin es have at least a single 40 foot pavement or two 30 foot strips and should be accessible only thru infrequent approach roads and ramps His study of the Bronx and West chester parkways in New York the Roose vel t boule yard in Phi ad elphi a the Chicago outerdrive and park way and the metropolitan parkway system around Boston have been the basis for his conclusions When the highway is kept at the same grade with city streets he says it becomes in effectonly an other city street for local convertj ience and does not aid thru traffic to a marked degree JTames sees in the successful velopment of the parkway an opJ portunity to link congested cities i with highspeed highways that will nsiire safe rapid movement of traf cic without the danger of intersec ion accidents or congestion jS Lewis Gives Garner Senior Class Sermon May The
