Happy President's Day! Did you know that Kansas-raised President Dwight D. Eisenhower considered the Interstate System one of his most important achievements? In 1956 "Ike" signed the Federal-Aid Highway Act & the Interstate System has been a part of our culture in our daily lives, & as an integral part of the American way of life. Thanks Ike! 🇺🇸 ⭐️ 🚗

Your questions about #69Express answered...
Q: How will the #69Express project enhance transit, bikeability and walkability in the corridor and beyond? 🚴 🚉 🚶
A: The express lanes solution would permit transit vehicles to use the express lanes at a reduced toll rate. This would allow individual transit riders to access a reliable trip at a low or no cost. KDOT anticipates that any hike/bike paths or sidewalks affected by project construction would be restored as part of the project.
Additionally, connectivity across U.S. 69, which can be a barrier to pedestrians and cyclists, would be improved at the various cross streets that do not have sidewalks or hike/bike facilities. Bike lanes on the arterial streets that cross U.S. 69 would be evaluated using the City’s criteria.
The environmental assessment (EA) process for #69Express continues to move ahead. 🌻 🌳 🦊
