1980s proposal to redesign NW 23rd @ Burnside

Though I am unsure the exact date on this project, I would estimate sometime in the mid eighties as the property at the lower righthand corner: Barbra Sue Seal real estate office on the corner of NW 23rd and Burnside was drawn in the plan.

The illustrated proposal was advanced in an effort to ease traffic and allow expansion of the Uptown Shopping Center by eliminating several internal streets and shifting alignments.

While the hillside road was mostly completed as drawn, and Westover terminates into 23rd with a dogleg, no other parts of this plan were carried out.
