Hazen Plan Would Include
Division of Rock Creek
•peelal Dispatch to The Star.
* NEW YORK. June 8.—Washington
eould “spend profitably" i,t least
125,000,000 on a new highway safety
program, including construction of
through-traffic highways skirting the
city and making a divided thorough
fare of the Rock Creek and Potomac
Parkway, Distrcit Commissioner Mel
vin C. Hazen said here today.
Mr. Hazen was greatly impressed
by the modern system of safety by
pass and elevated highways already
built and under construction in the
vicinity of New York, which he Is
inspecting with District Traffic Direc
tor William A. Van Duzer an(> Capt.
H. C. Whitehurst, director of District
“We can’t ever catch up, at the
Tate we are going,” Mr. Hazen said.
“Why these people up here are spend -
♦ Ing millions of dollars where we are
spending a dollar for traffic safety.
"I think we could profitably spend
at least $25,000,000 on needed projects,
♦but Washington always has been op
posed to going into debt and the
problem now is whether we should
go into debt for such a program.”
The Commissioner said he would
discuss the possibility of seeking-legis
lation for a bond issue to finance his
projected program with the Board of
i Commissioners and civic leaders on
bis return to Washington.
: “It is something to think about,”
he said, “and. of course, we will not
take any definite steps until after
- thorough discussion.”
, The party of District officials was
to be escorted today on a trip up the
new Henry Hudson Parkway along
the Hudson River, after a 125-mile
tour of other New York and New Jer
sey highways yesterday. The visitors
plan to leave tomorrow for Washing
^ Mr. Hazen said he considered con
struction of a modem highway from
J Alexandria to connect with the Balti
more boulevard and Defense highway
and avoid traffic congestion in Wash
ington by skirting the southeast and
' northeast sections of the city, as one
of the District’s greatest needs for im
proving traffic safety.
| • “And sooner or later,” he said, “we’ve
| got to divide the Rock Creek and
11 Potomac Parkway.” This would in
f volve having one-way roads on each
' side of Rock Creek, he explained.
Many of the new safety highways in
spected on the present tour are divid
*ed, with parkways in the center and
one-way traffic flowing on each side.
Mr. Hazen also was impressed with
the efficiency of horse-mounted traffic
jpolicemen in Manhattan and said he
planned to renew attempts to obtain
a horse-mounted police squad for the
District, where mounted patrols were
discontinued several years ago.
