Record of Decision Approved
The Kansas City District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approved the Record of Decision for a permit application under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1344) and for a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the South Lawrence Trafficway project in southwest Lawrence, Kan. The Record of Decision (ROD) documents the official decision of the Corps regarding the Section 404 permit application and the Final EIS. To view the ROD, go to this site's home page and click on "Record of Decision".

But to transition between K-10 and the Kansas Turnpike, drivers must use Lawrence city streets. This poor connection not only slows down traffic, it contributes to air quality problems and increases the likelihood of an accident on the streets of Lawrence.

KDOT has an obligation to make the Kansas transportation system function safely and efficiently, and to weigh the environmental and cultural consequences of the South Lawrence Trafficway project. KDOT takes these obligations seriously. An environmental impact study was conducted to assess the potential impacts of the project and offer measures to minimize or balance the effects of the new road.
