ZIMZAM FRONT STREET.
Kond Supervisor Lyiunii Reconi
mends Straightening Street.
Commenting on the condition of Front
street, Road Supervisor Lyman had the
following to say iu his report to the
Hoard of Supervisors:
Under instructions from Supervisor
Desha of tills district, the work of repair
ing nnd top dressing Front street as far
as the completion of the sewer lias been
commenced. The engineer lms staked
out the grades and f,iven me the line to
work on, which I find runs from King
street iu n straight line to two feet out
side of the comer of the Hilo Mercantile
Co. and Wood's store. Present side
walk and the top of the side walk grade
will be 5 inches below the present side
walk or making the gutter of the new
road 1 1 inches below the present gutter
iu front of these two stores. Running
011 that same grnde until I reach Church
street the lines iu the middle of the street
and the road wilt have to be cut alxinl
14 inches below the present street, and
the middle of the new street will be 011
the present store verandas on the makai
I would ask that these grades and street
lines be changed so as to run ns follows:
Starting from the corner of King street
nnd Front run on n gradual grade until
the corner of Wood's store is reached,
mid then from that corner change the
line to corner of Church Street, so ns to
include the present street, and have the
grade rise about 1 ft. to the 100 instead
of running down, and in that way I can
take the present street with very few
changes nnd round it up iu the center
nnd top dress it at a very reasonable ex
pense, but if the new street line nnd
grade is taken, the. street will be too nar
row for traffic and cannot be completed
without going to large expenses for grad
ing and buying rights of way, etc.
I also find that if the top of the Hilo
Mercantile Co.'s sidewalk on the west
corner is taken as the top of the sidewalk
that the grade will be a dowu grade from
King street and thus save having to dig
up so much of the present street.
