' <br /> <br />1 "At the last regular meeting of the Council held October 14, 1946, <br />various matters pertaining to the proposed Mill Race Highway project were set over <br />to this date as a special order of Business. <br /> <br />" Since that meeting certain members of the Council and the Mayor have <br />I.' consulted with State Highway Department representatives and have discussed the <br />proposed routing, right-of-way acquisitions and other details. <br /> <br />I The Ci ty has been informed by the State Highway Department tha t it <br />, desires to incorporate a section of this highway construction into its plans f.or <br />the projected Walnut Street-Broadway improvement on U.S. No. 99 for which a bid <br />call is scheduled within the next 60 to 90 days, prov~ded a joint agreement can <br />" be reached with the City of Eugene and Lane County, together with necessary com- <br />I mitments on the completion of the overhead connector and ,Willamette. River Bridge <br />!: within a five-year period. <br /> <br />t Preliminary discussions of such an agreement indicate that'the City's <br />:: interests can be best served by an arrangement whereby the .o,verhead structure, <br />~ traffic interchange and acess streets be constructed by the State, with t~e City <br />! agreeing to accept its obligations and allocation of costs in a sum not to exceed <br />I: $500,000, as authorized by the voters. A previously discussed agreement would <br />11 '",,; have allocated certain portions of the project as a responsibility of the City. <br />!. On the basis of preliminary estimates, these costs would exceed $500,000. <br />I <br /> <br />I, If the initial portion of the proj ect (namely the connection of Sixth <br />11 and Seventh Avenues) is to be accomplished in 1947, it appears necessary that <br />action be taken by the City and Lane County authorizing the negotiation of the <br />three-way contract, without.. undue delay.. · <br /> <br />, <br /> <br />~; Two other items in connection with the project, namely the purchase of <br />II the Mill Race and the approval or rejection of a Council Bill tha t would eliminate <br />I;, the Sixth Avenue grade crossing are on this evening's agenda. Bother of these <br />!I matters, however, appear to hinge on whatever course of action the Council deems <br />~.i fit to adopt with reference to the agr.eement as outlined, above. <br />~!I <br />. <br /> <br />~ In connection with the Mill Race acquisition, attention of the Council <br />I is called to the fact tha:t our opt ion on the same expires November 1, 1946." <br /> <br />'II,: It was moved by Bailey, seconded by Davis tha t the report of the Ci tyManager be <br />; received and placed on file. <br /> <br />Ii Various persons, including J.
