An illustration shows the latest design for a proposed elevated roundabout at the intersection of 14th Street, Old Cheney Road and Warlick Boulevard in southwest Lincoln.

I have been a resident of south Lincoln for more than 70 years. I use the intersection of 14th Street and Warlick Boulevard daily and, over the years, several thousand times. The wait line at McDonald's or Runza is usually longer than the wait at this intersection.

My suggestion is to put the project on hold until the South Beltway is complete. We have been waiting for that for 20 to 30 years. We should wait to see what impact that has on this intersection before we proceed to spend $30 million -- or more -- on a roundabout.

Perhaps it won't be needed, and perhaps we can accelerate the east bypass with the money saved by not doing this roundabout.
