The primary users will be motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Motorists will benefit from the increased capacity and safety of the widened roadway which includes additional through lanes and turn lanes. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be able to utilize the upgraded sidewalks, shared use paths and trail connections to negotiate the entire corridor and intersections. Transit riders would benefit from the integration of transit stops into the streetscape.
10. Scope: The project includes widening Quivira Road from a four-lane divided thoroughfare to a six-lane divided thoroughfare throughout the 3 mile corridor. The existing bridges over Indian Creek and Tomahawk Creek will be widened to accommodate the additional traffic lanes as well as provide for upgraded bicycle and pedestrian facilities across the bridges. The existing sidewalks and shared use paths along the roadway are anticipated to be reconstructed and upgraded to include connections to other pedestrian facilities along the corridor. The project will continue to provide multimodal systems to accommodate automobiles, transit, public safety vehicles, pedestrian and bicycles in order to maximize mobility throughout the corridor. The project will expand walkability and safety for pedestrians by maintaining and upgrading ADA compliant facilities and crosswalks.
