To the editor:
I understand the reluctance to spend money on the intersection of 31st and Louisiana while the South Lawrence Trafficway plans are up in the air, but how long must we wait? I spent more than 10 minutes waiting to get through that intersection yesterday while traveling west on 31st Street. And school hadn't even started yet! Surely, a relatively low cost measure, like enabling two lanes of traffic to go straight west, instead of saving the left lane for the rare turning vehicle, would help the situation.
