Motorists should continue to consider an alternate route when planning to travel near 23rd and Louisiana streets.
Currently, motorists are unable to turn northbound onto Louisiana from 23rd Street. Cars can travel through the intersection going south, east and west, but there are significant delays due to construction, according to a city of Lawrence news release.
East-west traffic can use 19th or 21st streets, while north-south traffic can turn to Massachusetts, Naismith or Iowa streets.
The construction surrounds an unmarked fiber line belonging to AT&T; that was struck by road crews last week while they were replacing a waterline.
The intersection will remain restricted until mid-May, the city said. Part of the 2200 block of Louisiana will also close to all traffic for a period of time, with possible overnight closures, for the installation of a water main.
The city's water main project will continue until the end of July, but may be extended.
