(ANDOVER, Kan.) — The Andover City Council agrees to look at changing a median, just built, on 21st Street.
The median limits left-hand turns into, and out of, the Quail Crossing Subdivision.
"There are 162 homes here and they rely on this as the main entrance for the entire development," explains Jeanie Shackelford, who lives in the subdivision.
Shackelford and others say they had no notice the median was going to be built. They add that having to travel on side streets in order to turn left onto 21st doesn't make sense.
Andover Mayor Ben Lawrence said the design was chosen to accommodate the growing number of cars that travel on 21st, and to increase safety by limiting left-hand turns. He also said having people travel on side streets helps alleviate congestion on busier roads.
