The city takes its name from Abbott Lawrence, a wealthy industrialist involved in establishing the community's large mass of textile mills. Today, these mills have largely been converted to retail and manufacturing operations.

Also based there are the Lawrence District Court, the Lawrence session of Essex Superior Court and the Lawrence Registry of Motor Vehicles. Lawrence General Hospital is located at 1 General Street.
Lawrence is located along Interstate 495 and Route 28. Route 110 and Rout 114 are among its busiest roads. In 2010, two city intersections along Route 114 were named to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s list of worst car accident sites.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission have closely studied the intersection of Route 114 and Andover Street in recent years. In a 2011 road safety audit, the planning commission noted the intersection continues to have one of the highest frequencies of crashes in the region.
