For UO Traffic Jam
By LARRY LAU
Deane Seeger, Eugene city manager, stated Monday evening
that the city streets committee lias conferred at length with Dr.
Harry K. Newburn, University president, and that a special,
three-step plan to alleviate the Webfoot traffic problem will be
recommended to the city council in their forthcoming meeting
next Monday night.
It will be requested that permission be given the University
to block Thirteenth by means of either lights or barricade, on the
east side of its intersection with Kincaid Street, and on the west
side of its intersection with University Street. The streets are to
be blocked off for ten minute periods each hour, according to the
plan, beginning at 7:50 a.m., and ending at 5 p.m. on all school
days. It was pointed out that there was little necessity of block
ing the streets all day because the majority of students are either
in class or off campus except for the periods when classes change.
It will also be suggested to the city council that suitable signs
be erected on Thirteenth to warn motorists of the ten minute
closed periods, and that through trucks be prohibited from using
■Thirteenth. It Avas on this score that Seeger felt there would come
the strongest protest.
Representatives of logging interests in the community have
been complaining of the existing restrictions. What attitude they,
will take towards further restrictions is problematical, he felt.
