Concrete Pavement Will be Elevated in a Thirty Foot Circle for Future Purposes

With an eye to preserving the natu-ral beauty of the Menasha city triangle the city council has made provisions for an additional amount of work on the street pavement at this point. City Engineer Albert McMahon has laid out a circle, thirty feet in diameter, which is to extend a distance of seven inches above the surrounding pavement, or the regular street level. By doing this provision is made of the possible construction of a foundation at any fu- ture time.

The concrete pavement has now been laid as far as the L. G. Arnold property on Main street and a special effort is being made to reach the Racine street intersection by tomorrow night, although this appears highly improbable at the present time. After this point has been reached, the work-men will shift to the opposite side of the track and complete the pavement as far as the Tayco street bridge.
