With warmer weather on its way, staff of the Lawrence Dept. of Public Works said they expect to begin four new road projects within the city this week.

Code Enforcement Director Bill Anthony said the work is scheduled to be complete by the end of May.

Streets Director Dave Lotts said the four projects are:

  • 52nd Street, from Pendleton Pike to German Church Road.
  • Mitthoefer Road from 52nd Street to Weeping Willow Drive.
  • 59th Street, from Wheeler Road to Lee Road.
  • Sandalwood Drive, from Sinclair Drive to 52nd Street.

Anthony and Lotts said there may be temporary lane restrictions and that drivers should plan accordingly.

“Be mindful of the inconvenience these improvements pose, and plan ahead for temporary delays during construction on commute times,” Anthony said.

“(Drivers should) excercise caution as the road work is being done and give the construction crews the space they need to complete their work,” Lotts said. “Lane restrictions will change as they are needed.”

Lotts said DPW crews will place signage along the roadside as reminders to motorists in areas where work is being done.
