The following motion has passed; the modest time saved through the construction on westbound I-435 is not worth the aggravation, and Bridge demolition at I-470 and Raytown Road causes headaches for nearby businesses. Oh, joy.

Shut Up and Dance 004

To work just on time yesterday afternoon, I went downtown and took 71 highway, which was a good thing since an accident at 67th Street jammed southbound I-35.

“Thus, when you give to the needy,
sound no trumpet before you,
as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,
that they may be praised by others.
Truly, I say to you, (Matthew 6:2)
they have received their reward.”

Found in all the promotional materials for the area, Kansas City has the most barbecue restaurants per capita, and where the streets have all names one will find the most railroad crossings and a Word of the Day at Dictionary.com – contretemps: an inopportune occurrence; an embarrassing mischance.

“Right in the middle of the whole damn show was a real nice tunnel, now wouldn’t you know? Sign says clearance to the twelve-foot line, but the chickens was stacked to thirteen-nine,” was basically what I heard on KMBZ about a wedged recreational vehicle under the only rail bridge in Olathe, which slowed trains and snarled traffic Friday afternoon.

Celebratory note 047

“Sometimes,” my father began, “I wonder about you.” Fortunately, those times are few and far between, between the other times that he wonders about me.

“‘Within two hours of his arrest, Martin McFly Jr. was tried, convicted and sentenced to fifteen years in the state penitentiary?’ … Within two hours?”

Blue light helps Overland Park police catch red light runners
Blue lights at K Mart are newest tools to stop red-light runnersAlicorn Lyra by ~Zacatron94 on deviantART

“Have you noticed the blue light on the underside of the traffic lights at College Boulevard and Quivira Road? They’re a new safety tool designed to help Overland Park police officers catch red-light runners.

When the traffic light turns red on the arm where the blue light is located, the blue light comes on and can be seen from every direction. This allows officers who can’t see the red light itself to look for vehicles in the intersection running the red light.

According to the city’s press release, researchers at the University of Kansas School of Engineering are partnering with Lawrence as well as Overland Park to install the lights and increase safety at four busy intersections: two in Lawrence and two in Overland Park.

The second Overland Park intersection equipped with the blue lights is at 75th Street and Metcalf Avenue.

The intersections were selected based on input from the cities’ public works and police departments.

The blue light system is a low-cost, noninvasive countermeasure designed to help police officers sitting downstream of an intersection to safely identify and pull over drivers who run a red light. It also reduces the number of police officers needed to monitor a traffic light and identify violators at the two intersections.

The project is funded by the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Mid-America Regional Council. After six months, it will be evaluated. The project began on July 2.

Brian Shields, Overland Park city traffic engineer, writes that the blue light is less visible during the day than it is at night.”

“Both east- and westbound College Boulevard will be closed at U.S. Highway 69 from 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 22, to 8 p.m. Friday, May 24, weather permitting.

Westbound traffic will be able to use the northbound U.S. 69 ramp from College Boulevard, but will not be able to cross under the bridge. The posted detour for westbound traffic takes traffic south on Antioch Road, west on 119th Street and north on Quivira to College Boulevard.

Eastbound traffic will be forced south on Switzer Road. The posted detour for eastbound traffic takes traffic south on Quivira Road, east on 119th Street, and north on Antioch Road to College Boulevard.”
