Lawrence city commissioners on Tuesday unanimously agreed to spend $11,000 to help fund a transportation study of the area near Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway.
The Kansas Department of Transportation study will look at future improvements needed to the area’s road network, including new traffic signals, turning lanes and access points.
The study is expected to cost about $100,000. KDOT will pay for the bulk of the study because Sixth Street also is U.S. Highway 40.
Douglas County and the Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization also are being asked to contribute $11,000 each to the study.
