The Metropolitan Park Commissioners have decided to open the speedway around Soldiers Field to motors on the days of big games. Heretofore motors have been obliged to drive through North Harvard street and into Stadium street in order to park machines in the vicinity of the Stadium. The heavy motor traffic has been dangerous in the crowd of pedestrians, and there has always been much delay for occupants of motors in getting to and from the games.
Under the new arrangement there will be constructed from the Metropolitan Park speedway two motor entrances to Soldiers Field, one near the University boathouse and the other near the University boathouse and the other near the baseball grounds. With this arrangement motor parties can approach the field by way of the parkway on the Boston side, easily reached through Commonwealth and Brighton avenues, and will not inconvenience the pedestrians on Boylston and North Harvard streets. It will also be much easier in getting away by means of the parkway. In conjunction with the new subway and the proposed Stadium bridge this should greatly facilitate access to all big games.
