The Wichita Priority Corridor Plan will recommend ways to make Broadway Avenue between 11th Street and 3rd Street safer and more inviting for people to travel along and across Broadway. The project will build on previous community planning efforts, including the Historic Midtown Neighborhood Transportation and Streetscapes Plan, and the Wichita Pedestrian Master Plan. The recommendations will include short-term and long-term concepts.
The Priority Corridor Project on Broadway began in mid-June and will conclude in mid-September. The process includes:
Focus area selection
Existing conditions analysis
Concept development and refinement
Prioritization, funding, and phasing analysis
Stakeholder outreach and engagement
Highlights from the planning process will be posted below.
On July 10, 2018, the City hosted a pop-up and community walk event. At the event, community residents and stakeholders had an opportunity to share information about their experiences and thoughts on the corridor.
The first open house for the Wichita Broadway Safety Corridor Plan was held on August 2, 2018 from 4:30 to 5:45 at the Robert D. Love Downtown YMCA. Approximately 20 people attended the event.
Planning & Design Committee
A Planning and Design Committee comprised of agency staff helps to guide the process including understanding of existing conditions, concept development, and selection of priority projects.
This team consists of City staff and Alta Planning and Design staff. The Planning Team is responsible for organizing meetings and events, concept development, technical analysis, and writing project documents.
There will be several opportunities for the general public to share experiences, ideas, and feedback on draft materials. Comments will help inform understanding of existing conditions, identify needs and opportunities, and shape concept development. Opportunities for engagement will be posted below:
The District Advisory Board and Wichita Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Board will also be consulted for input about the project.
