9 DE JULIO AVENUE: REMODELING, LENGTHENING AND TYING IT TO THE SYSTEM OF URBAN HIGHWAYS

AVENIDA 9 DE JULIO, REMODELACION, PROLONGACION Y ENLACE CON LA RED DE AUTOPISTAS URBANS

Reconstruction of the 9 de Julio Avenue to cope with the growing automobile traffic in the City of Buenos Aires is a project of great scope. It has been projected since 1912, and different sections have been completed since 1937. Even though only the central roadway is called 9 de Julio, running between parallel streets (named Bernardo de Irigoyen, Pellegrini, Lima, and Cerrito) separated by islands, the remodeling project also includes the lateral streets between existing lines of buildings. The author believes that the solution has been optimized. Vehicle traffic in the area has been channeled, with a capacity adequate for projected traffic in the year 2000. Parking capacity has been provided for traffic using the highway and the arteries running transversely to it. (Author)
