Bid approved for traffic-calming devices

July 2, 2008


A project to construct speed cushions on Lawrence Avenue between Ninth Street and Harvard Road is moving forward.

Commissioners approved a bid of $15,704 from LRM Industries to build the two traffic-calming devices. Commissioners had given approval of the plans in July 2007 but had not assigned a funding source to the project. Commissioners will use general obligation bonds to pay for the speed cushions, which are similar to speed humps but have cutouts to allow fire engines to more easily travel through the area.

How many pot holes can be filled with $15,700? Potholes seem like a more urgent project to me!

Just what we need: more expensive traffic hazards.

WT#??? Lawrence Ave between Harvard and 9th????? Since when did this 25 mph zone need more calming? These things do abolutely nothing to slow traffic. Drive on Harvard between Monterrey Way & Wakarusa - there are a few along there and cars easily fly thru the middle area, meant for "emergency vehicles".
