127th Street from Metcalf to Nall is a 1-mile section that required improvement due to the expanding population of Overland Park. This highly traveled section of roadway provides a route to the South Creek Business Park from residential neighborhoods to the east. BHC RHODES provided survey and engineering design for the improvements which consisted of reconstructing the two-lane roadway to a divided four-lane thoroughfare section; the addition of dual southbound left-turn lanes on Metcalf Avenue, and sidewalks (with ADA ramp designs) that connect to the Tomahawk Creek trail system. Landscaping enhancements, storm sewer design, decorative street lighting, bridge maintenance, RCB connection, traffic signal modifications and utility coordination were included along with extensive public involvement.
