in the routing. Some of these were
achieved through communal pres-
sure.
As an example, the Beacon
Square subdivision along Eleven Mile
Road in Southfield pre'ssed to have
grassy berms built along the freeway
instead of a cement wall. MDOT also
agreed to put up new entrance signs
for the subdivision.
Similarly, Huntington Woods
petitioned to have berms built in ad-
vance of the freeway, so the neighbor-
hood would be separated from the ac-
tual construction process.
Oak Park, a small section of
Royal Oak Township, and Southfield
— three segments near Greenfield
Road — will have decks over 1-696.
The one at Church Road in Oak Park
will have a baseball diamond, a sled-
ding hill, tot lot and lighted bicycle
paths. Another deck being con-
structed behind Federation Apart-
ments may have a concert area and
certainly benches. The third deck,
near Yeshivath Beth Yehudah school,
will tentatively have a playground on
it. Many of the families who were dis-
placed by the highway held out for
reasonable settlements from the
state. And one synagogue, Temple
Emanu-El, finally settled for
$445,000 in compensation for land
being taken behind its building. As

The freeway is providing a windfall for Temple
Emanu-El. A building may be added to
