4th Street from Choctaw Street to Seneca Street

image description

The 4th Street corridor from Choctaw Street to Seneca Street (1,300 FT) is in the heart of historic downtown Leavenworth. The project is funded with KDOT City Connecting Link Program (CCLIP) money as the roadway also serves as US-73 and K-7. The existing roadway is four 10 FT lanes with truck traffic. After a traffic study, this project will provide a “road diet” to a 3-lane street section. Pedestrian facilities will be widened and enhanced with streetscaping. Public preferences will guide these improvements. Traffic signals will be designed. There will be extensive utility coordination on this project, including the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to reveal the presence of unknown utilities. Vacuum excavation to locate utilities and dye testing to identify sanitary discharges will be performed. Storm sewer camera inspection will aid in the system improvements.
