Street closures coming to Lawrence

The City of Lawrence has announced that beginning Monday, October 17th, the roundabout at Harvard and Monterey Way will be closing until Friday, October 21st or as weather permits.

The closure is due to a leak in an 8-inch water main valve. A news release from the city says that the conditions surrounding the valve are more complex due to the depth of rock and pavers in the intersection. The repairs need to occur immediately to avoid hazardous road conditions that may result from colder weather predicted in the coming weeks. The work will be completed by a contractor.

Southbound traffic will be allowed through the roundabout; northbound traffic on Monterey Way and westbound traffic on Harvard will not be allowed. The city is encouraging motorists to utilize alternate routes to avoid the site and minimize backups. Detours will also be in place.
