Completion of Saline's relief drain serving a large area in 1116 northeast part bf town, coupled with heavy rains and flooding last month, has resulted in some natural excavation work through Old Creek subdivision north of Willis Rd. Old Creek Drive, shown above "in the rough", was originally planned as a boulevard, with the storm drain running open down the middle. But now, plans call for the drain to be buried, carrying runoff water underground to the south side of Willis Rd. The developer of the subdivision expects the drain to be completed in six weeks. Landscaping of the ditch-tnrned- parkway will complete the transformation later. The new subdivision also features underground electrical and phone leads, eliminating all utility poles and overhead lines.

Ripped from its heavy masonry underpinnings during the big flood last month, the wooden structure rode the torrent far downstream, finally coming to rest near the old Fxils and Bracket flour mill. It eame through the ordeal in reasonably good shape and was judged to be fit for .restoration. So Saline DPW workers ajptd one of Ted's Service wreckers hauled it* up to solid ground, loaded it aboard a trailer, and brought it back where it belongs. Jaycees will rebuild the handrails, then the DPW crew will swing it across the stream again. According to present plans, the bridge willSbe back in business in plenty of time to carry steak broil customers to the Fifth Annual Rotary Cookout scheduled for Saturday, August 24. The feast will be held at the park shelter,vvisible in the background above . . . and steak lovers -will be able to judge the amount they^ve eaten by the amount the bridge dips on" their return trip to the parking lot. * ' - . _ ■ , "cated, and one"or tv£__£out owners of ;small husinesses, August 19 ^ ^ right to purchase or rent MEEt = : —-, : : >«£SX^&to^*ST&'Z^ dTYM.ETSTOBE AT CORNER BUILDING .ff=ia_£ suaby "ssrssrs ss « iT^f^5 ^^=^^ sr^Kl-J4. s: -, - ^ -_ be«at courtroom, •** ^ ^^ ai w Jaycee MW aaTJ.r.1, „ y , , B t.. • 1968 (State Act No. 112, ces . . . among them Plym- Club . . ■ stui meet at o _j.ui. nrPcPnt ritv Hall at the an Emereencv Operations Cen- _. ^ ,, -,- - m. week f0r such a loan or obtain Public'Acts 0f Michigan) outh, Birmingham, Flint, Yp- each Sunday at "The Place", ^^BW^*™ *f_ ^m«f e$^ uperanons >en meetmg at 8 p.m. Monday.
