  1. So sorry to hear this. Errol was my step brother. His step mom Lorraine Stevens and I (Sherry Rawson) are so sad.

  2. I have never understood why trucks (concrete, semi, auto trailer, etc) exit off I-70 at 59th street and then drive west on K32 only to go to truck depots that are off I-435. I does nothing but jam up K-32 with an overload of traffic and tears up the K-32 pavement. Just look at the pavement on K-32 just west of 59th…it is continually full of broken pavements, ruts, potholes, etc. Trucks such as FedEx, Old Dominion, Swift and others should take I-70 to I-435 and then down I-435 to K-32 which is where their terminals are located.
