Traffic alterations on Massachusetts Street beginning July 8

Maureen BradyCity, Construction, Municipal Services and Operations

Beginning Wednesday, July 8, City crews will close one lane of traffic at a time on the segment of Massachusetts Street between South Park, to clean paint off the roadway. The work is anticipated to last one to two days. During this process, it may be necessary for City crews to close both lanes for a short period of time.

Traffic control will be in place and suggested detours will be marked. Updates will be provided as necessary. All project timelines are subject to change due to weather and other project-related delays. For more information on construction projects and traffic alterations in Lawrence, visit
