Trafficway surveying to continue Wednesday

February 2, 2010

Engineering survey work along the South Lawrence Trafficway will extend into Wednesday, with the highway reduced to one lane for traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between North 1500 Road and Clinton Parkway.

Flaggers alternately will stop traffic between the two points, with a pilot car leading vehicles through the work zone.

Surveyors are gathering engineering data for the design of a potential new trafficway interchange at North 1500, which is Bob Billings Parkway in the city of Lawrence. The project has been pursued by governmental leaders but has yet to secure any money for construction.

Let the noise begin in west Lawrence. Bob Billings Parkway will now really be a race track.

Oh great let's get another stop light that turns red for one car turning right. Soules is the worst traffic engineer in America.

I've noticed that too. That is so frustrating. Stop 25 cars so that one car can slow down and turn right. The need a few more left turn yield on green arrows like the one they put at 34th & Iowa turning into Walmart. They need a few of those in front of Home Depot so that you don't have to stop and wait for oncoming traffic that isn't even there.

Dg Co voters approved the SLT 20 years ago. Build it already.

Instead of stop/go lights, build roundabouts. Cheaper in the long run and more friendly to the enviornment.

NO JOKE! the stoplight at 6th and congressional (new walmart) is both dangerous and extremely questionable, at best. a stoplight at the bottom of a hill on a highway? one minivan stops 40 cars? Try to get through that light and the light at wakarusa...HA! I dare you. the only way to do it is to run through the empty red light at congressional like everyone else. that intersection should be a flashing yellow for the cross traffic-nothing else.

and bob billings the new speedway? all I can say is THANK GAWD! then I don't have to take 6th st and sit at all the bogus lights whilst the one walmart shopper in a beat up dirty caravan stops all the traffic on highway 40 just cause they need to burn a few food stamps.
