Looking Southwest, a diversion for Harlem Avenue has been completed and construction is about to begin on the new bridge in late 1964. On the right, a ditch follows the route of the former Worth Road. A development is underway west of Harlem and north of College Drive. Palos Heights is unincorporated.
