Before the days of jumbo jets and turnpikes there was rail travel, an American staple since the 1830s. Today, it’s almost a quaint reminder of a bygone era. But the spiffed-up Burlington Northern Santa Fe depot in east Lawrence is reminding travelers that rail travel is still here, and it may be gaining, um, steam.

A Penny's Concrete truck approaches the intersection of Queens Road and Overland Drive on Friday. People living just to the east of Queens will be facing new fees as the area west of Queens is developed. Currently an unpaved street, Queens Road will also be paved with the new development.

That’s why Jason Pendleton said he and his neighbors near Overland Drive and Eldridge Street didn’t expect their pretty little pasture view to be permanent. But they did expect the approximately 10-acre tract of ground near their homes to be developed with single-family houses.
