Work is continuing on the long-awaited Cloverleaf at’ Route 1 and Nahatan St., Norwood, and workmen have now constructed several stanchions that will support the huge “elevated circle.”
When work is completed, sometime in 1958, traffic will be able to flow smoothly în and out of Norwood over Route 1. Widening of the highway from the Westwood line to about 500 feet beyond East Cross street, should be complete next spring. A six-foot concrete island will make Route One a divided highway to East Cross street, and Town officials are in hopes of eventually having the road double-barrel to the Town Line
What is now West Border Road will be relocated, and still serve motorists in the southeast corner of Town. East Cross street west of the highway will be cut off by the Route One Island, and traffic will only be able to turn south ‘toward Providence) on Route One. Traffic on the easterly side of Route One on East Cross street will have to turn north.
Another hazard will be lessened when traffic from Pleasant street will be forced to turn only right. No traffic will be allowed to turn up Neponsct street from Route One, as a cul-de-sac will be installed at that comer
Town Engineer Bill Thompson and Engineer Walter Ryan contributed to present the graphic layout of the proposed elevated circle layout which appears on page 12 of today’s Messenger.
