Betty Leipold: US 40 construction

I am impressed with how quickly the Lincoln Avenue construction is going, especially since the weather is cooperating. Just as impressive is how cleanly Scott Contracting works — no debris or rubbish left behind.

But I still take issue with the bump-outs. Ask anyone what they think of the bump-outs. The answer is an emphatic "I hate them!"

They are a bad idea. They have taken away several parking spaces and they are a real hindrance to making a right turn on red (which keeps traffic from backing up). Please, no more bump-outs.
