State Road & Losey Boulevard
State Road and Losey Boulevard South looking west, 1970
Losey Boulevard South and State Road were both four-lane streets in 1970. K-Mart had been built on the northeast corner in 1965, after its Ohio developer battled the Common Council on a rezoning issue. On the third request, council members approved the zoning change from residential to local business and parking, with the developer agreeing to build sidewalks and other minor improvements as part of the project.

The 2003 photograph of this intersection also shows Losey Boulevard as a four-lane street, with left-turn lanes to make traffic flow more efficiently. K-Mart remains at its orginal location, but other businesses visible in the 1970 image have left. Advertising signs dominate the scene, as they did in 1970.
