A lot going on today, JK?

Hang tough, you've got a hell of a job to do. Most of the nitpickers haven't been out of the basement recently enough to know the snow has melted.

Yah, cause we all know that no one in this town knows what day it is unless the local paper tells us. Just one more reason to explain how someone else makes a mistake but turn the tables and see how quick they turn and run

Get with it Lawrence??? What's that mean? This is a State highway, not a city street.

ya thats like blaming the water dept for removing the beaver dam at the wetlands. How many people in this town have nothing better to do than make a traffic hazard on a major road>?

Wow, if I saw that much 'crazy' in that short a period of time, I might try to quietly sneak home.

I think frontage roads on each side of 10hwy with access at Noria & at Farmland/COOP would make a big differance.

It was crazy. I saw the trucker siting in his cabin lookin pretty awful ashamed waiting to get a ticket. I swear it looked like someone could've easily been killed. It was intense. He tried to pull out in front of K10.

Now there is a Ford Focus convertible.

The state really does need to put a light out there. Every time I drive by there and see those big LRM trucks trying to pull out and turn left during morning rush hour traffic, I cringe. I'm not even going to talk about the guy with the big bobcat. Yikes!

Since when does Lawrence service K-10. Get out of your basement and look at the highway sign. It has a big Sunflower on it. Which means 'State of Kansas." Wow. If you have not the knowledge to make educated posts then stop wasting your time.

No can tell by the way the road becomes much better when transferring from 23rd onto K-10, or worse when you transfer from K-10 onto 23rd.

I don't care who is responsible for it. They need a damn light there.

They need to finish the bypass not put a freaking stop light on the STATE HIGHWAY (not the city of lawrence).

I drove by this yesterday and couldn't even make out what kind of car it was. All I know was that it was blue as it was already loaded up on the tow's flat bed & was pretty smashed up. My son just graduated last week & moved to Topeka. Guess what part of his graduation present was? A blue 4 door, Ford Focus. So imagine my horror when I woke up this a.m. to read the LJW & saw the video for this story! I thought I was going to throw up! I called my son immediately who (thank God), answered the phone. Long story short, it wasn't him in this accident. He's fine, the car is fine and he'll be home this weekend for more graduation festivities! I am SO happy to hear that the person that was in this accident had only minor injuries, because from what I saw yesterday, the damage to that car was beyond "minor".

The state did a study of this intersection and decided at that point it didn't need a light. The businesses and employees of the business park have begged for a light and the requests have all been denied. What does it take to get the point across to the state that this is a dangerous intersection?

Ron Holzwarth 7 years, 8 months ago

The tragedy is that it usually takes a fatality to get the point across.

DISCLAIMER: I've ONLY been told this by someone who might not know the facts: It takes fatal accidents actually occurring before a danger is recognized.

Freeway on both ends traffic lights in the middle. I thought that's how all Kansas highways are designed.
