During 1951, much progress was made toward the construction of a new highway connecting Hammond Street and Main Street. If it had not been for questions raised by the possible expansion of Dow Field, contracts would have been let in October and the highway would have been opened for traffic in the summer of 1952.

This proposed by-pass highway has as its major purpose the elimination of truck traffic from the residential section of the west side of the city. At present, the major portion of the truck traffic coming from or going to outer Hammond Street and points west follows a route along Silver Road, Webster Avenue and Buck Street. The first purpose of the by-pass highway is to provide an alternate route for this truck traffic between Hammond Street and Main Street.
