Editor's note: Today is part five of a six-part series, "Forward Jamestown," on some of the major areas of the Forward Jamestown Land Use and Transportation Plan recently approved by the Jamestown City Council. In order for Jamestown to move forward, as suggested by the title Forward Jamestown, the lack of housing for new and current workers will have to be addressed. The Land Use and Transportation Plan shows that the total number of housing units in Jamestown increased by a little over a 10-year period.

When growth occurs in the southwest Jamestown area, as is predicted in Forward Jamestown, also known as the Land Use Transportation Plan, one of many challenges the area will have to contend with is how to connect that area with the rest of Jamestown. Currently the main access to southwest Jamestown is through U.S. Highway 281, which goes over Interstate 94 by use of an overpass. Twenty-fifth Street Southwest connects Walmart, Applebee's and a host of other commercial and retail businesses to 281.
