You can tell your economy is thriving when the only businesses that seem to thrive in Lawrence are family dollar and an upscale burrito king (chipotle). Lawrence is apparently emulating Topeka and doing a pretty good job.

===============================

There will be a bar. Road building is thirsty work. Especially when they get to digging up the swamp.

There was a wreck right at the entry to the business park.

Anybody know why westbound traffic was diverted off K-10 onto Noria Road during the AM rush this morning? Saw nothing about it here today.

Why the vague answer, is it a secret?

It is a secret because the "restaurant" is actually going to be a state financed cafeteria for those people working on the SLT to be able to get their meals and get their thermoses filled with coffee. Word is they'll be supplying cigarettes to those workers that smoke as well.

The "shop" is actually going to be a tool crib where whatever necessary tools are needed for whatever particular jobs can be checked out as needed. The building will be guarded 24 hours a day by National Guard troops to prevent sabotage from the likes of, well we know who. The cafeteria will be available to them as well.
