Abnormally Heavy Traffic Makes HardSurfacing Necessary Claim Definite assurance that the south road between Mason City and Clear Lake is to be paved next year was received Monday morning from Clif ford L Niles chairman of the Iowa State Highway commission The abnormally heavy traffic requires something more than a 16 foot road in poor condition Mr Niles stated in his explanation of the corn missions decision to pro ceed with this project immediately upon the opening of paving work in the spring Traffic fs Heavy Counts taken by local highway officers show that more than 4000 cars pass over the road in 18 hours of an average day and that on Sun days holidays and special occasions the number greatly exceeds this fig ure This heavy congestion is responsi ble for a large number of accidents on the highway and results in seri ous delays to travel Besides being inadequate the present pavement to Clear Lake is old part of it is in bad shape and all of it too narrow local persons interested in the movement have brot out One Way Traffic Plan It is pointed out that the new road will have as easy or an easier access from Clear Lake as the pres ent one and will make an ideal thorofare for traffic from the lake to Mason City The road will make the distance no farther than the highway now traveled The present pavement it is stated could then be used as much as possible for traffic moving westward This ar rangement will make most of the traffic move oneway grade on the south road was completed by the Cerro Gordo coun ty road officials this summer and is ready except for some shoulder work for the pavement in the spring City Must Also Pave The promise of the highway com mission to pave the road in spring is contingent on the fact that the city will pave seveneighths of a mileto Central Heights or to the city limits Thepavement it is stated will be at least 18 feet in width T A Potter ofMason City a di rector of the Iowa Good Roads as sociation hag been
