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.
The Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has begun a 30-day public comment period for the draft Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP): Transportation 2050. The Plan identifies future needs and makes investment recommendations for all modes of transportation including automobile, public transit, bicycle, pedestrian, etc. This plan reflects the feedback and perspectives provided from the community engagement conducted in 2022. This plan is required by federal regulations to ensure funding for transportation projects throughout Douglas County.
Review and comment on the draft plan now!
The official T2050 30-day public comment period begins on January 23 and will end on February 22. Comments received will be considered for the final document, to be presented to the Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Policy Board for consideration at their meeting at 3 p.m. on March 16, 2023, in the Lawrence City Commission Room.
