Comments

To relieve a lot of ancillary congestion on 69 and 135th and 119th, it would make a lof of sense to consider an overpass to connect 127th street over 69 without the need for entrance/exit ramps. A more expensive project than 133rd street overpass was but with recent infrastructure funds available, now would be a good time to consider this.
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will build 11 noise walls as part of the U.S. 69 Expansion Project.

In a vote, a majority of residents and businesses in the area approved of the walls, which will be built from 119th to 151st streets.

Learn more about the walls and the overall project at https://bit.ly/3pkPvKf and on the 69 Express page.

Your questions about #69Express answered...

Q: How will the #69Express project enhance transit, bikeability and walkability in the corridor and beyond? ๐Ÿšด ๐Ÿš‰ ๐Ÿšถ

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 Cityโ€™s criteria.
