LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Student government leaders at the University of Kansas say they should have been more involved in the decision to allow a section of university-owned wetlands to be used for a Lawrence highway project.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/1fOpkCt) reports that the university's Student Senate has issued a resolution voicing its disapproval. At issue is the decision to let the state use 8.87 acres in the Baker Wetlands to complete the final stretch of the South Lawrence Trafficway.

The completed bypass will carry traffic from the Kansas Turnpike west of Lawrence to Kansas 10 east of the city, allowing through traffic to avoid city streets.

A university spokesman said in a written statement that officials have consulted student leaders extensively this year and in past years about the project.
