• The city of Lawrence will be sealing street cracks in the neighborhoods east and west of Monterey Way, north of Sixth Street. Lanes may be closed temporarily during working hours.

• Street traffic has shifted from the existing shoofly lanes onto the new 23rd Street bridge near Haskell Avenue. Two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane will be open on the bridge as crews work to remove the existing shoofly lanes and finish road work.

• Street concrete will be reworked this week on Nicklaus Drive, Palmer Drive and Hogan Drive, east of Inverness Drive. Through traffic will generally be maintained, but there may be street closures.

• Belle Haven Drive, from West 25th to West 27th streets, will be closed to through traffic, and there will be no parking from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The utility department will be installing a water main.

• Kentucky Street, between Seventh and Eighth streets, is closed to traffic because of construction related to the Lawrence Public Library’s parking garage construction. It is expected to be closed through Jan. 25.

• The west entrance of the Ninth and New Hampshire parking garage will be closed to traffic Jan. 24 to Feb. 1 for concrete repair. Alternate entrances and exits are available from New Hampshire Street.
