- On-Street Bike Lane Addition
Our team completed plans for street improvements and the addition of on-street bike lanes for a 4-mile segment of Southwest Boulevard and Merriam Lane from the Johnson County line in Kansas to the Missouri state line. The project was designed and constructed in four separate contracts, which were federally funded through the Mid-America Regional Council, with construction contracts administered by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). In addition to design services, we provided resident construction observation in conformance with KDOT Local Projects requirements.
Southwest Boulevard Bike Lanes — This project provided dedicated, on-street bike lanes for 1.8 miles through the heart of the Rosedale neighborhood. The work addressed operational deficiencies, including storm sewer conflicts, sidewalk and ramp improvements, alley access and parking. The first phase entailed removal of parking from one side of the street, extensive traffic studies and alternatives analysis. Construction included surface overlay, signage, pavement markings, local retrofit of bike-friendly drainage grates, and sidewalk and ramp improvements.
Merriam Lane Street Reconstruction — This project involved the reconstruction of 2.2 miles of Merriam Lane from 10th Street to the Johnson County Line. Work included curb and gutter, sidewalk, storm sewer system, revisions of commercial entrances, and on-street bike lanes that connect with the Southwest Boulevard bike lane system. The improved street clearly defines the spaces used by motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and parking. Planning efforts included extensive utility coordination for the relocation of water, communications, gas and overhead power facilities, as well as state-of-the-art traffic signals at two intersections.
