Slow down, or the city will help.
The City of Lawrence is scheduled to begin work Tuesday on one of two traffic-calming projects this summer.
City contractors will install speed cushions on Lawrence Avenue, which will close the street to traffic from Ninth Street to Harvard Road for at least two weeks. People living along the street will have access to their driveways during the project.
People living near Lawrence Avenue requested that the speed cushions be installed to help slow down traffic on the street. The project will cost the city about $16,000.
Later this summer, the city also plans to install a raised crosswalk at 18th and Louisiana streets.
