Now that the new Dollar Store is nearing completion [in Laurie], I am more concerned with the speed of vehicles coming down the hill on Highway 5.
Last year I wrote about changing the speed limit from Highway 135 into town to 35 mph due to the new post office location in that area.
Nothing was done by the city council or MoDOT. Do we wait for an elderly couple to be killed as happened in Greenview or do we take action now?
With those of us who live off of RA, the entrance to the new store asks the question, "Why wasn't it put directly across from RA in case a stop light was ever needed due to increasing population?"
