Copy and paste the link:
I traveled the new 59 this past Wednesday evening going from Lawrence to Baldwin. From the junction of Hwy 10 to the Baldwin exit it took me about 8 minutes. I counted 86 vehicles traveling towards Lawrence. Three of those were semi's. This was a little after 5:00pm.
Isn't this what the SLT was supposed to do?
I'd prefer an underground tunnel from the west side to the east side
Don Johnson was at his coolest in A Boy and His Dog.
I prefer my outer loop less traveled, thank you.
Kill the SLT and put that 200-300 million tax $$$$ into the more sensible loop that enhances more counties instead of investing in an obsolete 25 year old plan.
Man. Dweezil Zappa. A bass with no headstock. The 80's were a real mess.
Don Johnson is cool. He was cool in Miami Vice. He was cooler in the remake of Long Hot Summer, and he's coolest in this. This is music for real men. I bought the cassette the day it came out.
Don Johnson Heartbeat
yea, and it should be built with yellow bricks
"T_O_B, Do you still subscribe to Esquire magaZine?" RI
Nah. I did for a couple years where they were practically giving the magazine away. I got tired of flipping through cologne ads to fine the one to two decent to great articles they had each month. Now I can just find whatever I want to read online. Speaking of... editors of long form writing: do not break the article up into 15 different pages. Freaking annoying.
Geez Tusch, maybe you should heed your own advice about the whining less?
The new 59 is awesome. Some of you have forgotten how awful, dangerous and slow the old highway was! I haven't seen near as many cops since they opened the new highway. If you are speeding, you should be pulled over.

"You all need to realize what the impact of the new Intermodal transportation facility in Gardner will be to the existing highways! Thousands of containers being loaded and unloaded on to semi's going in every direction every day!!!"
And who forced them to build it there? It was built there because it supposedly has such great access. If it isn't enough let one of the richest men in the world pay for the new roads or better yet, just restrict their access to the interstate. Hopefully instead they'll rebuild all the railbeds that use to go to practically every town in Kansas which they tore up after consolidating and it was profitable. Make it profitable again, let the free enterprise system we hear so much about rebuild the infrastructure.
"I hear the North Koreans actually got a missile off the pad...I'm not sure if they know where it landed though. But the launch was deemed a success."
I think that was actually North Kansas City that you were reading about
Who watches Matthew McConaughotty for the acting?
Matthew "Naked Bongos" McCounananan is a terrible actor. I think the naked bongo thing had something to do with James Dean. I don't think Matt knew that Dean's contemporaries used to call him the Human Ashtray, due to his penchant for having dominant men put cigarettes out on his chest. You can learn a lot from reading Hollywood Babylon.
Do you still subscribe to Esquire magaZine?
I just found out that Matthew McCoughanayaaya's brother, Rooster, named his kid Miller Lyte.
I have no use for this information, so I'll leave it here for whoever wants it.

Go have a 12 pack!
Coffee is my cocaine.
Tusch is right about the Franklin County drivers. They speed all the time. Coming to town, leaving town, in town. I can almost understand coming to town, but leaving? They're just going back to Franklin County for cryin' out loud. Whst's the rush?
Since the Gov. wants us to grow up and be like Texas, will it have an 85 MPH speed limit?
A relevant study worth looking at was done in the 90s where they compared Des Moines, IA and Lincoln, NE, each roughly the same population, but Des Moines spending a billion dollars more creating a transportation loop around itself. Guess what: the congestion rate was LESS on the Lincoln roads than the Des Moines roads, because the ribbons of asphalt promoted sprawl, folks living further away and commuting further, and businesses locating way out in the boonies. KC metro is already seriously sprawled; this will only make it worse.
I think the camera dude is just messing with us now.
This outer loop deal came out a few days ago. I think it is merely a red herring for something else.
I'm sure there was a point there but all I heard was blah, blah, blah....
I wonder how Hugo Chavez is doing? I'm sure some of the boys are concerned about their favorite dictator. And in other news, I hear the North Koreans actually got a missile off the pad...I'm not sure if they know where it landed though. But the launch was deemed a success.
another proposed boondoggle just like the barely used US 59 I avoid using now
while driving old 59. I go to Lawrence 22 or 23 days out of the month and I barely
see traffic on that new highway. I see lots of animal carcasses because
the road went through their old woods and many cops pulling over
lawless Franklin County drivers that speeding laws don't apply to them.
with this art laugher tax cut in place and hundreds of million in cuts needed
to pay for it how does blowing this kind of money sit with the tea party
mantra of fiscal responsibility? again if most of eastern kansas was Indian reservations
until the 1860's and there are sites affected by this nonsense doesn't make my
actions useless obstruction just because a society with no knowledge of it's
history and white courts who use the power of money purchased denial
to suppress their wrongs a bad thing. Some people were stating this yesterday.
We stopped tribal sites from being affected with the existing route of the new 59.
Learn more....whine less.
Where we are going, we don't need roads.
with the SLT controversy over , we need to get our next " we gotta have it at any expense" fight underway.
30 to 40 years in the future? Never happen.
As long as there are no friggin lights on it.
I don't care. Outer loop, outer space...blah, blah, blah.
Am out of the "Loop" on this one. Does it include Brown Bears, Beer, Billboards of Lesbians, and Bullets? That would not be too bad.
Don't build it. I'll never use it.
The world is on the down side of peak oil. Better invest in bike trails and light rail. By the time an 'outer-loop' is built the climate here will be warm enough to ride a bike year round.
I actually like what Stuart says. I think it is insane that we are spreading out over fertile farm ground when we have thousands of vacant buildings inside the city and suburbs. I hate seeing completely vacant shopping centers and malls and I am not even talking about the inner city... I am talking about Shawnee, Lenexa, and OP.
