T. Goyne. called the Board'a Stention to a condition <br />existing on the highway in the Village of Chester, stating t'hat the bridge over <br />the Atlantic Coast Line Ry. near the Chester High School was inadequate for the <br />traffic now being passed over it, and that recently a least one school child <br />had been struck by a vehicle and while no injury was sustained it was a forceful <br />example of what could happen on this bridge. He suggested that the bridge <br />formerly used by the Virginia Electric & Power Company now owned by the Virginia <br />Department of Highways, together with approaching roads be conditioned for <br />travel and be used as a one-way bridge for west bound traffic on Route $1 at this <br />point; that the existing bridge be used for one-way travel for east bound traffic <br />at this point, and that by so doing it would relieve the necessity of passing <br />on the present narrow bridge and would give an opportunity to develop a protected <br />walk along these bridges. Upon consideration whereof, and on motion of H. T. <br />Goyne, it is resolved that the Virginia Department of Highways be and it hereby <br />is requested to make a survey of this situation and to take such steps as possibl~ <br />during this t&me of emergency to relieve this congestion. <br />~nd be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Virginia <br />Department of Highways. <br /> <br /> <br />
