The new. plans will probably call
for a bridge with a wider draw and
a higher elevation. The building of
such ! a bridge is considered practical
by many of the leading men of the
city; However, there are a few who
think' that it could.be placed higher
up or further down the river and still
serve all purposes.
, Mr. W.. MacMillan, Jr., chairman
of the-special bridge committee of the
Chamber of Commerce, is strong in
the belief that a ferry at that point
would never prove satisfactory, as it
is necessary to provide a ready means
of access to the west side of theriver
if that side is to be built up. He aid
ed that the center of business would
;still be on the east side as it is to
day, regardlessof what might develop
across the Cape Fear. Mr. McMillan,
as a fember of the Board of County
Commissioners, was largely responsi
ble for presenting the plans for such
a bridge to the government engineers.
