For many years Eastern Parkway from Prospect Park to Franklin Ave nue had been ripped up, due to tho sub way work, which was completed two years ago. Finally the road was re paired nnd two weeks ago was opened for traffic. Uvery one was delighted. Now soma one has awakened to the fact that Eastern Parkway needs new light poles, which require underground wiring, and along baa come the light people and cut trenches across the newly built roadway at Intervals of 100 feet. They fill these trenches with loose stones, ruining the road. It seems as If the Bureau of Highways, or whichever de pal tmcnt bus Jurisdiction, has fallen down on the Job in seeing that the light wires wore not placed before tho road was finished. Alfred B.
