Construction Routes Summer 2023

June 27, 2023 - News

Getting to the Dole Institute of Politics

Due to ongoing construction throughout the City of Lawrence, visitors are advised to use alternative routes to travel to the Dole Institute. Please provide yourself additional time when traveling to ensure you arrive on time and safely.

Visitor Parking at the Dole Institute of Politics

Visitor parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in the first two rows of Lot 300 at the Dole Institute. Please park in these designated spots to avoid being ticketed by KU Parking & Transportation Services for parking in a permit-required zone.

Ongoing Construction in Lawrence and the KU Campus

  • Lawrence Transit Transfer Facility Construction – Crestline Drive is now open for traffic. Be aware of stopped traffic and other construction-related closures due to the ongoing construction of the Lawrence Transit Transfer Facility at Bob Billings Parkway and Crestline Drive.
  • 23rd Street Roadwork – 23rd Street is operating one lane of traffic in each direction between O’Connell Road and Barker Avenue as the city works on necessary upgrades to the street. We recommend using Iowa Street from Kansas Route 10 (K-10) or Interstate 70 (I-70) to bypass traffic congestion.


If you plan on using Lawrence Transit or walking/cycling routes to travel to the Dole Institute of Politics, please be aware of the construction sites above, as bus stops, sidewalks, and cycling lanes may be closed. If you plan on using Lawrence Transit, we recommend downloading and using the MyBusLawrence app, available on your device’s app store, to help plan your journey and track buses on your route.
