Lawrence residents cite concerns with river trail project; City Commission asked to offer direction

This article does not mention one of the primary reasons for using concrete. It is to make the trail accessible to all, including those who use wheelchairs, walkers and other mobility devices. There are so few natural areas that my friends who use devices can access. We need to be inclusive when we invest in recreational areas.

Lawrence engineers recommending lane reduction for stretch of Kasold Drive

The $1M savings is in City of Lawrence tax dollars, not federal dollars.

Lawrence engineers recommending lane reduction for stretch of Kasold Drive

The 1M savings is not tied to grant money. That's $1M in Lawrence taxpayer money. The grant is tied to roundabouts. If we go with a signalized intersection instead, the cost to Lawrence taxpayers goes up by $300,000.

Older traffic projections may not take into account newer north-south routes such as Monterey, Wakarusa and the SLT.

Letter: Kasold configuration

Pat, you raise some good points. I'm generally in favor of the three-lane solution, and agree that we need to get it right.

The land will be used to improve conditions for people who walk, ride a bike or use a wheelchair.

The three-lane solution is a proven way to improve safety and reduce cost. We currently have this configuration at on 9th near Emory and on Kasold north of Peterson.

Caseload needs to be rebuilt regardless. The three-lane solution will cost $1M less than the five-lane overbuilt road. The city could do a lot with that $1M saved.

Letter: Traffic expertise

John:

The critical issue is traffic count. There just aren't enough cars on Kasold any more to justify four lanes. The surrounding neighborhood is fully established, as are traffic patterns. No one would be suggesting this if traffic counts warranted four lanes.
