Portion of New Hampshire Street to be closed through March for hotel project

January 23, 2014


Plans call for a portion of the 900 block of New Hampshire Street to be closed until March 31 to accommodate construction of an adjacent hotel.

Crews building the multistory Marriott extended stay hotel recently received city permission to close both lanes of New Hampshire from Ninth Street to the mid-block crosswalk in front of the Lawrence Arts Center.

The street space will be used to house a crane for the project. Access to the city parking garage will remain open, but motorists will be able to access the New Hampshire Street entrance only from the south.

Hasn't that been closed for two weeks now?

That's what I thought too, Ken .. in fact it's been closed for a LONG TIME - at least one lane ..

The northbound lane has been closed, but the southbound lane has been available.
