I just had two lovely ladies speak to me briefly on my front porch about the proposed plans to turn U.S. 56 into a four lane highway, due to anticipated intermodal traffic. Clearly, I am not remotely informed as this was a surprise to me...
I certainly had realized that the would be increased truck traffic on 56 (regardless of what the planners have stated); I have wondered why it was necessary to increase the speed limit and guessed it was due to anticipated traffic, but I had NO idea that I could now anticipate a raging highway one block behind my house.
Anyone have any further info about this? Any cries of agnst regarding a four-lane anything running through Baldwin? Is it bunk? Is it true? I'll have a call into KDOT come Monday, but as for now, I'm wondering if anyone else has any information they wouldn't mind sharing.
