They are trying to get thru traffic outof downtown, thus, switching 4th street to a two way. Thru traffic in downtown would only hurt it not help it.

That cant happen. The state over rides the local governments and there is a Bill that has passed several years stating there will be no toll roads thru out the whole state of ky. U were misinformed. It happens.

I'm glad it's bs.I live here and have no interest in watching downtown flourish while I'm running late to work every morning.

It wouldn't make downtown flourish, downtown wouldn't be helped by a huge volume of traffic. This would help nothing at all, just people making up stuff to get drama started.
It was slow

It was an April Fool joke, but it was delayed due to traffic congestion in downtown.

Of course it's BS, but anyone who lives here knows that if Mayor McCheese thought it would help justify the millions spent downtown, he'd be out there right now smiling for pictures in front of the toll booths being built. I can't say he's the biggest crook in the history of Owensboro politics, but he's somewhere in the top 5.

Is the bypass turning into a toll road? From the bypass you can turn into the Audubon Parkway, or the Natcher Parkway. That's not the same thing as turning into a toll road, but it used to be.

Payne sucks and they are wasting tons of money that could be better spent on things the city actually needs. Better drains...so the whole city doesn't flood everytime it sprinkles...etc.

Now that's actually a pretty good idea, we should be going out and buying better drains, I heard you can buy some pretty good ones now days and and they work 3.5 times better, lets rip out all our old messed up drains and install new ones. I wish the mayor would have thought of that one.

What part of the drainage system is meant when referring to a drain? Just where the water goes in from the street? Or also the drain pipe it goes down to?

What's the difference in the new ones? Or is it just pouring money down the drain?

Nah man it's just a new drain, new drains will work better, we just need to put them in instead of wasting money, you know?
