I would like to know who's idea it was to tear up east 23rd Street with the Douglas County Free Fair going on this week.
Assistant City Manager Debbie Van Saun said: "The timing of street repair projects is a challenge, particularly on major streets in Lawrence such as 23rd Street, Sixth Street, Iowa, etc. The window of opportunity is sometimes short, due to weather, special events, the KU/Haskell schedules, etc. We apologize for the inconvenience that these repair projects cause our motorists and certainly aren't singling out any one group or event to inconvenience. Please note that there is an entrance to the Douglas County fairgrounds off of 23rd Street east of Harper Street. It is signed and is just west of Don's Steak House."
