Soul food restaurant opens in eastern Lawrence; don't let signs of redevelopment worry you at The Bottleneck; more than $200K of traffic calming considered for 27th Street

Two charged with human trafficking in alleged prostitution at Lawrence massage parlor

Lawrence neighbors voice concerns over Bob Billings Parkway traffic

As the article states, it was the community offering the ideas of roundabouts. Roundabouts do move traffic smoothly and efficiently. The area of Bob Billings west of Wakarusa is residential and it is the concern of the residents that people will use the road as a speedway.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Walking and waking at Rock Chalk Park
