There is talk among some city officials about plans to reduce Kasold from four lanes to two lanes between 14th and Eighth streets. By Conrad Swanson Twitter: @ Conrad_ Swanson F uture construction plans for Kasold Drive include a potential “ road diet” for the street, which hasn’t seen a significant increase in traffic over the past two decades, city engineers say.

The work involves a complete overhaul of the road stretching from Eighth Street south to 14th Street. “ The two options are to reconstruct the street as we have typically done with a five- lane section,” Cronin said. “ Another option, what we’re calling the ‘ Complete Street Option,’ reduces the five lanes to three, including the center turn lane.” The Complete Street option, reducing traffic from two lanes traveling in each direction to one lane for each direction, is the option city engineers are recommending to city commissioners, Cronin said.

Also stowed were more than 20 carefully wrapped cocktail glasses. Buhler, a Lawrence native, is competing this week in the United States Bartenders’ Guild World Class finals after winning the national competition in June. Buhler plans to use the Kansas mementos as part of his presentation for the competition’s “ Around the World” challenge, in which each World’s best bartender from Lawrence ?
