And then in succession: A 10⁰ curve, to the left; 10 chords; a tangent of 100 feet a 10⁰ curve, to the right, 8.5 chords; a tangent of 1485 feet; a 9⁰ curve, to the left; 8 chords; a tangent of 2230 feet; a 3⁰ 45’ curve, to the right; 6 chords; a tangent of 200 feet; a 6⁰ 05’ curve, to the left; 5.7 chords and a tangent of 400 feet to the fair grounds front"--page 3.
