Notes: "Monterey, Calif., will receive $4.3 million in additional federal funds to tunnel traffic under its historic old city. The whole city-old and new-can be integrated through the tunneling plan, proponents say. Moreover, it will allow the preservation of some fine old buildings and may prove of economic value. The idea for the tunnel, not in the original plans for the downtown area's redevelopment, was credited to Lawrence Halprin & Associates, landscape consultants for the project."
