Location #13

This is a small section of the pre-1920 highway and is located near the intersection of N. Thompson Rd. and Sheehy Rd. at a point about 1/2 mile south of the freeway overpass over Thompson. As with many instances in this study, the old routing avoided digging deep road cuts, and more often followed more the natural coutours of the land.
