I live in Leawood and take 127th frequently. I have to agree with the residents -- it doesn't need to be a 4-lane road with a higher speed limit. People already go too fast on that road....and to where!!!-- it stops at Metcalf and becomes a windy 2-lane in Leawood.

If you want to go 55mph, don't cut through residential areas.(And lets face it, the signs will say 45, but even sane people exceed that by 10, and crazies by 20+).

Keep it 2-lane...a 4-lane in that area is ridiculous.
