A look at the city's gravel road that runs by millions of dollars in new homes; work begins on west Lawrence apartment project

Queens Rd needs replaced ASAP. It has been horrible for as long as I remember. Your suggestion is good, but they really should just put that money to use up front and fix it right the first time; it is a major north/south street for that area.

Also, there isn't a need for a stop light at Queens Rd and Sixth St. It would be easy enough to construct a median in the middle of Sixth St to force right turns only from Queens Rd on to Sixth St and allow left turns only from Sixth St on to Queens Rd. Traffic could then go down to Stoneridge to make a U-Turn to head back east. Forcing this right turn might just make people take the Overland Dr to Stoneridge route to the light to avoid the hassle.

KDOT to have open house for comments on Kasold Drive/K-10 intersection

At MINIMUM, there needs to be an underpass/overpass to keep the road connected from the north to south of the SLT.

KDOT to have open house for comments on Kasold Drive/K-10 intersection

I did, actually...unless it was on a separate article. They should build an underpass under the SLT with on/off ramp access. "Too expensive!" Not really; no such claim can be made since there isn't even funding available for this project. Making an underpass answers the safety issue as well as the community's wish to keep access.

Large pet supply chain files plans for store near Sixth and Wakarusa; Lawrence gasoline prices still the highest in the state

Lawrence does need another QuikTrip. The northwest corner of 6th and Wakarusa would be perfect.

KDOT to have open house for comments on Kasold Drive/K-10 intersection

Again, all four of those options are horrible. Hopefully the people able to attend can express their dissatisfaction with the lack of importance KDOT is treating this intersection.

KDOT engineer says four options being considered for K-10, Kasold Drive intersection

Honestly, KDOT needs to be treating this intersection with the same type of importance they are for the 27th and Wakarusa intersection. The public support to keep this intersection open has been pretty clear.

Since this entire project is still but a pipe dream, they need to just go ahead and include the money in it to turn this intersection in to an underpass or something.

All four of those options are terrible.

Lawrence sales tax collections post big gains; numbers suggest new Menards may be adding big totals to city; fast food chain reopens on 23rd

Oak Park Mall and the majority of the other stores there at 95th and Quivira are in Overland Park. And anyone that isn't a dumb dumb knows you can still easily access that area from 87th St, I-435 or US-69.

Lenexa honestly doesn't have a true retail center like the cities around it.

After fanfare, forecasters review talk of storm 'outbreak'

Really it was the local TV meteorologists who caused the forecast to be a 'bust' with the over sensationalism. When you look at the data the SPC shared and what transpired during the actual event, they were dead on.
