Tucson has solved the railroad
grade crossing that Is bothering El
Paso. but they had a situation that
made it easier. Along the fall length
of the track in the city there ex
tends a park, for some width on each
side. It was not hard, therefore, to
build subways beneath the tracks and
send the traffic under the tracks In
stead of across them. The subways
come up to level ground by the time
they reach private property en either
side. The park was the solution.
These subways are paved and lighted
by electricity, with a sidewalk on
either side for pedestrians and are
artistic as well as useful.
