Description

Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Arranging a detour through Nichols Hills is not the easiest job in the world. The fact has been noted during construction work on a 3-lane widening project in the community on N Pennsylvania. The widening itself is within a few yards if being done, and some resurfacing work is all finished up. All that'll remain after that is to "even up" the streety in a spot or two. But The Project was done despite the fact that Nichols Hills is not exactly built in such manner to facilitate setting uo alternate traffic routes. The widening is the second stage of a county bond issue project, and this stage takes care of a mile of widening street from NW 63 to Wilshire Blvd...When Nichols Hills was built, the planners had in mind a lovely community, with winding streets, spacious lawns, big trees, and a park-like atmosphere...Nichols Hills toke a dim view of this at first and set up stringent regulations (20 miles per hour, no passing, no trucks). As has been pointed out, this is the rule all over the community. It's just emphasized on Pennsylvania. (photo tag: This unpaved stretch is all remaining of N Pennsylvania widening project through Nichols Hills.)"
