Vining, Crestline, Sylvan Streets - NO Connector to Barkley Blvd.
|Thirty neighbors on dead-end streets off the north side of Alabama St met on March 7th, 2002 at Bloedel-Donovan Park, to learn and discuss the idea that the City seems to have, to punch though one or more of our quiet streets to Barkley Blvd.||The great majority of our neighborhood seems comfortable with the present streets which give us a very functional access from Alabama Street. The top map shows how it is now, with a Greenways Trail along the south side of Barkley Blvd., just above Big Rock Garden.|

|The cheapest construction effort would be to connect Crestline or Sylvan Street to Barkley Blvd, just a few hundred feet of new road ("Prob"). The red circles highlight the problem-intersections!||Another route might connect the new subdivision being built (2002) south of Barkley Blvd., with a new "Alternate" cut-through near the Big Rock Garden Park, to Sylvan Street below the Pond.|
