The Kansas Department of Transportation will hold a regional summit to discuss the future of the transportation system in the 5 counties bordering the Kansas City area: Wyandotte, Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami, and Douglas counties.
The purpose of the summit is to “develop creative solutions to future transportation needs. Stakeholders will come together to rethink major transportation systems and how those systems can support community goals in the 5-county area.”

This is a chance for Kansas bicyclists and pedestrians to positively affect future transportation goals for a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community in notheast Kansas. KDOT is asking for and wanting our participation and support. Without us, they can not do what we need them to do to make our use of the roads safer. Please consider attending and speaking up on behalf of bicyclist and pedestrian needs.
