(WICHITA, Kan.) — Concrete barriers, dangerous U-turns and unmarked back road entrances.
A church in Andover has been dealing with problems for months, since the city added a raised median along the 21st street corridor.
The city says it's planning for the future. But in the present, members of Peace Lutheran Church are frustrated by the lack of access.
Last year, construction began on a raised concrete median along 21st between Andover Road and 159th St. E. The long term goal is to handle increased traffic from expected commercial development. The median may look nice, but for drivers along the busy road it's created more than a few headaches.
"(The city) Didn't give us a chance to do any input on it in the very beginning at all," said Dennis Hein, a member of Peace Lutheran Church. Hein said when the city added the median, it took away a key entrance point to the church.
