This project will serve as the final piece of a series of project that have created improvements along Donahoo Road, from K-7 to I-435.

7. Project sponsor: Unified Government of WYCO/KCK
8. Total budget in 2019 dollars: $6000000
9. Project description: The primary users of these improvements will be daily motorists. As mentioned previously, this is the final section of the Donahoo Road corridor that has yet to be improved from its current rural county standard to a modern urban roadway. This section has 4 residential neighborhoods with access points along this roadway is a direct path to the Piper School Districts elementary, middle, and high school, as well as their sporting fields.
10. Scope: The overall length of this section is approx. 1.0 mile of rural county road profile. One of the main goals of these projects would to create a more uniform roadway profile to match up with the prior improvements to other sections of this corridor that provides effective and efficient travel for every day users. In order to accomplish this the roadway would be widened, storm drainage considerations would be made, routing signage, bike/ped trail access along the corridor (and to near by community centers or point of interest). The characteristics of this corridor would change from the older rural standard to a look that has a more modern section.
11. Project schedule: As previously mentioned, this is the final section of Donahoo Road that has not been improved to a modern section. It is anticipated that work on this section would begin in 2023 and be completed in 2025.
