Community Planning Overview:

This project envisions a new future for this mixed-use corridor through the center of a metro Kansas City community. The corridor plan, a subject of intense community interest, achieved consensus though a collaboration with stakeholders in public design workshops and a presentation and evaluation of fully-developed and comparable alternatives. The recommended result is a four to three-lane reduction, alteration of the street channel to provide an enhanced multi-use sidepath, access management carefully tuned to the needs of adjacent businesses, and streetscape and interpretive features that make a valued public place of this key corridor. Positive public response has accelerated implementation of the project.
