Road closure for portion of New Lawrence Road this fall

 City of Leavenworth Public Information Office – August 13, 2018

Construction begins this week on New Lawrence Road from 20th Street Trafficway going 1,500 feet east and north, which will mean a road closure of this section until late fall. The road will close to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic. All construction is weather-dependent.

New construction is necessary to support residential development in the City of Leavenworth’s first new subdivision since 2009. The current pavement will be torn out and replaced. New storm drains, new gutters and new sidewalks are being added. The City contracted with a local contractor, Lexeco, for the project. Funding comes from property taxes that will be generated by the subdivision.

The private business developing the homes built its own internal roads and sidewalks inside the subdivision. The subdivision has 101 planned lots, with 45 lots being developed in 2018.
