City of Lawrence hosting open house for Bicycle Boulevards project

Maureen BradyCity, Metropolitan Planning Organization, Planning & Development

On Thursday, March 28th, the City of Lawrence is hosting an open house for the Bicycle Boulevards project. The open house will be held in the rotunda at Lawrence High School, 1901 Louisiana St., from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Design concepts for both the 13th and the 21st Street Bicycle Boulevards will be shown at the open house. Community members are invited to come learn about the design concepts and share thoughts with project staff. Attendees can also share feedback about the temporary bike and traffic demonstration projects installed at 13th and Connecticut Street and on 21st Street east of Naismith Drive ─ part of the Bicycle Boulevards project.

The temporary demonstration projects were installed on Thursday, March 21st and should stay in place for at least two weeks, weather permitting. In advance of attending the March 28th open house, community members are encouraged to walk, bike and drive through the temporary demonstration projects to experience how they work firsthand.

In addition to the open house, feedback on the two temporary demonstration projects can be provided online through our Lawrence Listens surveys.

Bicycle boulevard concept designs and priority features were generated by project staff based on feedback gathered from online surveys and two public open houses held in February 2019.

Additional details on the Bicycle Boulevards project can be found on the project website at lawrenceks.org/bike-blvds.
