Project Updates

Peoples Gas // Multiple Intersections

Please be aware that a new Peoples Gas Project will be starting in the ward at the end of May 2017.

  • This project consists of 5 replace in place intersections. The intersections are as follows:
    • Carmen Ave & Kenneth Ave
    • Ainslie St. & Kenneth Ave.
    • Lawrence Ave. & Kenneth Ave.
    • Tripper Ave & Ainslie St
    • Keeler Ave & Ainslie St.

This work will just be in intersections, will not shut down any traffic. However, parking could be restricted, so please watch for and heed posted 'no parking' signs.

The work in Lawrence will be in the north curb lane so the traffic lane will remain open. Work will start to the east and work west. School should be out by the time the project gets to the Carmen and Kenneth intersection.

Thanks in advance for your patience during this project!

Saturday Work

UPDATE: The Peoples Gas contractor, KS Energy, will be starting to work Saturdays starting this Saturday 9/9. They will be in the 4900 block of N Lowell. 
This is needed to keep ahead of the planned sewer project and also to stay on target to get paving completed before the asphalt plants close for the season.
