LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A report from the city of Lawrence says it may need to spend $200,000 to alleviate an increase in traffic on one street due to the closure of part of another.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/1JBwCVS ) reports traffic on 27th Street has doubled to about 6,000 cars per day since part of 31st Street was closed.

The City Hall report estimates about $200,000 worth of traffic circles, speed cushions and other devices could help slow traffic.

The report also says $140,000 could help to build a new sidewalk on the north side of the street and a new pedestrian activated bridge.

These improvements, if approved, would not be completed before midsummer, which is when the Kansas Department of Transportation expects to reopen the portion of 31st Street.
