What do you think of the Old West Lawrence traffic devices? City launches online survey

An online survey is asking folks to share their opinions on the city’s traffic project that has placed temporary barriers throughout Old West Lawrence neighborhood streets.


Ahead of a virtual public meeting Tuesday, the city has launched the Lawrence Listens survey to gather feedback from those who drive, walk, bike and otherwise move through the neighborhood’s streets.

Many survey questions are aimed at residents of the neighborhood, but some seek other community members’ thoughts. For example: “If you had to make a choice today, which of the following best captures your attitude toward the device installations?” Answer options range from saying you would like to see the city “Make the diverters permanent in their current arrangement” to “Stop the traffic calming devices altogether in OWL.”

There are also open-ended questions, such as “Is there anything you would like to add about how your driving has changed since the devices were installed?” and “Please elaborate on any minor or major adjustments you would like to see considered.”

The survey is available via the Lawrence Listens page on the city’s website. As of Monday morning, it had received 17 responses. It requests a full name and address for those who complete it but says that personal information will be kept confidential.

Tuesday’s virtual meeting is set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Register to participate at this link.
