After going over the ground during the afternoon as a committee of the whole, the city council last night under suspension of the rules, passed an ordinance vacating portions of streets and avenues in the northern part of the city In favor of the Chicago Northwestern railroad com pany, which, it Is announced, plans ex pending about $300,000 in the improvement and enlargement of Its terminals in Council Bluffs. The streets and avenues vacated Include a part of Avenue F, between Eleventh and Twelfth streets, a strip on the west side of Eleventh street west of Avenue O and that portion of Eighth street north of the brick yards. In exchange for North Eighth street, the railroad deeds the city sufficient ground for a roadway east of the present thoroughfore. The alley in the block between Avenues F and G and Elev enth and Twelfth streets is also vacated. The railroad agreed to maintain the new portion of North Eighth street for one year and to maintain permanently a fence on the west side between the roadway and its tracks. The council, also by resolution, granted the Northwestern railroad the right to lay two or more tracks across Avenue G and Twelfth street, across the same avenue be tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets, across Avenue E. and across and along North Eleventh street. The company was also given permission by resolution to construct and maintain a temporary track on North Eighth street during the necessary excavation for the eroding of tbe new yards and construction of new roadway to take the place of that portion of North Eighth street to be va cated. The railroad company asked for the vaca tion of Avenue U, but abutting and ad Joining property owners objected and the council declined to grant the request. The improvements contemplated, work on which, it was stated last night, would be commenced at once, are to consist of a twenty-four stall roundhouse, the capacity of which can be increased to accommodate fifty locomotives, a machine shop, a black smith shop, a store house, a modern coal shed, car repair yards with a capacity of 150 to 200 cars, coach yards with a capacity of 100 coaches and a general yard with a capacity of approximately 1,000 cars.
