Lawrence Wants to Hear From You!

The City of Lawrence is conducting a multimodal corridor study for Massachusetts Street from 14th Street to 23rd Street.  Information about the project can be found on the City website here.  

The Lawrence Bicycle Plan identifies this corridor as a priority bikeway network. The study will include safety, efficiency, and equity considerations for all modes of transportation.

The project’s first public open house and community conversation is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25, from 4:30 – 6:30 PM at the Liberty Memorial Central Middle School Library (2nd floor, elevator available). This event is to inform but, more importantly, to seek community input.
