I'm glad that so many people are having fun with the fact that the bridge closing is effecting so many - loss of business, more $ spent on fuel and time on the road. Andini - get your facts straight before you get sarcastic - there is a Hardee's is east Lawrence and one well west of the portion of the turnpike being close east of Topeka.
