9. Project description: The existing Midland Drive is a narrow 2-lane ditch section road that serves as a major connection between 1-435 to Shawnee Mission Parkway/Barker Road. This segment of roadway serves as an alternative route to Shawnee Mission Parkway and is over-utilized, based on the current roadway section. The project will provide reconstruction and widening of Midland Drive, including on-street bicycle lanes, a recreational trail on one side and a sidewalk on the other side, new LED street lighting, signing, pavement markings, storm sewer facilities and other improvements. The improvements will connect into an existing bicycle route and provide for a pedestrian friendly corridor.
10. Scope: Midland Drive is a key East-West connection in central Shawnee, designated as a future arterial roadway. The current roadway is narrow, unsafe, and provides no sidewalk, recreational trail, or adequate bicycle facilities. This segment is currently designated as share the road and but has little or no room to accommodate bicyclists. This project will enhance the safety of drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists and provide for transit opportunities.
11. Project schedule: This project will be included in the Citys CIP for construction in 2025
