street and return east on Second street and north on Welsh street This would avoid the periodic congestion seen on Fourth street which is so narrow thafc i is almost impossible for a large truck and trolley car to pass each other in this area It would also eliminate congestion so often seen at Third street Edpmont avenue one of the busiest intersections in the central citv section Other suggestions would prohibib buses iroin takinc on or discharging passengers ac Fifth and Market streets but ample loading space for buses passing here would be provided at Fifth and Welsh streets and Fitth street and Edgmonl avenue Under the proposed recommenda tions a fourway traffic light would be placed at the junction of Twelfth street Providence avenue and Edg monc avenue It is pointed out thafc no extra expense would be involved here as the light standard now at Ninth and Welsh streets could slallcd at this polnfc and the light re cently removed from Twentysecond street and Providence avenue erected at Ninth and Welsh streets The unused traffic light at Third and Lloydstreets would be installed at Twelfth street and Morton ave nue according to the recommenda tions Among other
