Lawrence City Commission agenda set for Feb. 23 meeting
Bottom line: Commissioners will consider approving a 2016 street maintenance plan comprising 18 mill and overlay or micro surfacing and patching projects that would cost approximately $2.8 million.
Background: In August, the City Commission approved approximately $2.1 million be used for the 2016 Contracted Street Maintenance Program. Among other projects, the program includes the installment of 94 bicycle pavement markings and twenty bike route signs this year, as well as three speed bumps on Crescent Road from Naismith Drive to Engel Road. The cost of those additions, approximately $70,000, would come from funds set aside in the 2016 budget for pedestrian- and bicycle-related improvements and for traffic calming.
