Through the Planing Sustainable Places Program supported by Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), RFQ’s were requested for a walkability study. BHC was selected as a subconsultant to the winning team. 

The general limits of the study area:

  • 1-435 on the north
  • 119th Street on the south
  • Nall Avenue on the east
  • Metcalf Avenue on the west

Key priorities included:

  • Move traffic with enhanced pedestrian and bicycle connectivity
  • Establish a hierarchy of street and paths to serve all modes of transportation
  • Identify and develop a vibrant public realm that encourages safe and interesting amenities for walking and biking
  • Establish a system of wayfinding to guide vehicle and pedestrians through the corridor
