“I’d say the 12th and Ohio area. Going south across the intersection is awful.”

“This is my first time in Lawrence. There seemed to be a lot of work on Iowa. So in my very limited opinion I’d say that’s a good place to start.”

Put city map on the wall, place dart in hand, move hand foreward, release dart, there's where you start, other words just about any place. Also there is getting more semi traffic on Kasold from 6th to farmers turnpike after the new blacktop resurfacing last summer. this will not last to long with the heavy truck travel.

The 1000 block of NJ is pretty ridiculous, SE of NY elementary it's like driving on the rumble strip on the side of the highway!

9th and Iowa needs some serious renovation. Stop wasting money out there in the 6th and Wakarusa area, that is a dead zone, it just don't know it yet.

They need to fix the roads right the first time in a way that will last decades instead of ripping them up every year for job security. I'd rather spend the money that way. There are plenty of other types of infrastructure we could use than low quality roads every year. How about new sidewalks that are wide enough to accomodate both pedestrian and bicycle traffic like they have in Germany (which are two lanes wide). Our sidewalks are atrocious in places but no one fixes them because our money goes to cheap road repairs year after year. Plus, this town is simply unsafe to ride bicycles in. They cause more congestion and risky irritable driving habits. And honestly, unless they're widening it to add a turning lane (sorely needed on Iowa), I saw nothing wrong with Iowa street. I thought it was really odd that they ripped it up to redo it like that when so many other roads clearly need the work.
