GT1320 - R669

The described location for GT1320 is very close to GT1321.  They would probably be within 15-20 feet of each other if GT1320 was still there.  It's not.  The roads are wider than they used to be and the location described from the centerlines places GT1320 under the pavement, if it remains at all.  I doubt it.
