Kasold lanes between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street reopen for Christmas traffic

December 23, 2010


Traffic has been opened to both lanes for the Christmas holiday on Kasold Drive between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street, where crews have been rebuilding the road and improving utilities.

Traffic will again be reduced to one lane in both directions on Monday. Portions of that stretch of road will continue to be reduced to one lane each way for the duration of the work, which is expected to take about a year.

Like it matters. It's well signed, poorly enforced. Even when the flashing marquee displaying drivers were driving 35+mph, people continue to speed right through, workers and all. Guess that isn't a high class neighborhood, so I really shouldn't expect anything less.

Every time I drive through- which is at least 4 times a day there is a patrol car with someone pulled over. So I would watch out if you're speeding through there...

At first they didn't have signs stating where the road work ended so people assumed that in the middle of the construction it went back to 40 mph. They changed the signs to clearly state that it's 20 mph the entire stretch and are now patroling much more.

Not quite sure what the class of a neighborhood has to do with people following speed limit signs, seeing as most traffic on that road have nothing to do with the people living there. People speed on pretty much any road, no matter the conditions, no matter the "kind" of neighorhood it is.

I live right off of the road construction and am very glad to see it open for the holidays. It's a pain trying to get on and off my street when it isn't condensed to one lane in both directions, so these last two weeks have been nothing less than frustrating! This is a nice break in the beginning of what is going to be a long year!
