Bicycle Boulevards final conceptual design available online

Maureen BradyCity, Metropolitan Planning Organization

The final conceptual design for the 13th Street and 21st Street Bicycle Boulevards is now available to view on the City of Lawrence website, here: lawrenceks.org/bike-blvds

The Bicycle Boulevards design has evolved to account for safety considerations, best practices and public input. Feedback from previous open houses in February and March 2019 as well as from Lawrence Listens surveys was incorporated into the final conceptual design.

Community members are invited to review the final conceptual design online or at one of two open houses being held this week. Open houses will be hosted in a come-and-go format where attendees can review and discuss the final conceptual design with project staff and the design consultant. Both open houses will cover the same content.

Open houses will be held on Wednesday, May 15 and Thursday, May 16 at the following locations:

  • Wednesday, May 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
    Meeting in the City Commission Room at City Hall (6 E. 6th Street)
  • Thursday, May 16 from 4 – 6 p.m.
    Meeting at the East Lawrence Recreation Center (1245 E. 15th Street)

Feedback on the final conceptual design can be provided in person at an open house event or online through Lawrence Listens. Go to the Lawrence Listens web page and select the “Bicycle Boulevards – Final Conceptual Design” survey to share your input.

Project staff will present the final conceptual design to the Transportation Commission on Monday, June 3. A presentation to the City Commission will follow.
