Work related to a waterline installation will require some closures along 17th Street, according to a news release from the City of Lawrence.


Starting Thursday, the intersection of 17th and Vermont streets will close to local traffic. That closure is expected to last three weeks “pending weather and other project-related delays,” according to the city.

Southbound lanes at the intersections of 17th and Massachusetts and Kentucky streets will close later on. The city will announce the dates of the closures on social media, according to the release.
