Cyclists Sought For Gateway Corridor Focus Group

From KanBikeWalk comes news of an opportunity to improve bicycling in Johnson County, Kansas:

Cyclists Sought For Gateway Corridor Focus GroupYou are invited to participate in a focus group to discuss the Gateway Corridor project in Johnson County. The focus group has approximately 15 seats available, so please RSVP as soon as possible, to reserve your place in this critical meeting affecting bicycling on Lenexa, Olathe and Overland Park roadways crossing I-435, K-10 and I-35.

KanBikeWalk, the non-profit bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organization working to make bicycling and walking safer throughout Kansas, has been working with the Kansas Department of Transportation and their consultants, HNTB, Inc., on the proposed “Johnson County Gateway Corridor” project in Johnson County. We are planning a focus group meeting with bicyclists to discuss improvements to local roads and interstate highways affected by the project. The Gateway Corridor encompasses the area along I-35, I-435 and K-10 from Quivira to Ridgeview Roads and 95th to 119th Streets. For more information on the Johnson County Gateway Corridor project, visit http://www.jocogateway.com/.

As a part of the initial planning for this major transportation investment, KanBikeWalk, KDOT and HNTB need your input on how to best make the project area more bicycle friendly. We would like to hear your experiences and suggestions at this focus group meeting set up solely to gain bicyclist’s input on how to improve the area for bicycling. This is your opportunity to be involved in how your transportation tax dollars are spent.
