Douglas County residents encouraged to participate in virtual meeting about South Lawrence Trafficway

Thursday, May 14, 2020 - 10:25am

The Kansas Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are hosting a virtual meeting for the public to learn more about the South Lawrence Trafficway Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS).

The virtual open house provides project updates and shares the reasonable alternatives for the South Lawrence Trafficway (SLT) improvements. Participants have the ability to submit questions and comments through an online form that is sent directly to the project team and they respond as needed.

The purpose of the SEIS is to evaluate options for improving the SLT, including review of reasonable alternatives that will enhance safety and improve congestion while supporting its use as a thriving corridor for the City of Lawrence and the surrounding region. The SEIS is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

To attend the virtual meeting, visit between May 14 and June 4 and follow the Public Meeting links on the front page.

After the conclusion of the virtual meeting, a summary of questions and comments and meeting materials will be posted on the website.
