Wichita Downtown Streets Conceptual Plan

Let’s Talk Downtown Streets

Downtown is Wichita’s economic, cultural and entertainment heart. The City of Wichita continues to develop long-term plans to shape downtown to better accommodate development and to enhance the neighborhood as a place to live and work. With new growth, a strategic, comprehensive and integrated plan for street design is crucial to attracting and maintaining a healthy mix of uses and new development in Wichita.

The Wichita Downtown Streets Conceptual Plan:

  • Identifies ways to improve safety and mobility downtown

  • Provides a framework for downtown street design that meets current and future needs

  • Is financially feasible, with broad-based support

  • Includes clear and realistic guidance in moving from plan to action

This plan introduces new downtown road configurations that meet all modes of transportation, including vehicles, bikes, scooters and foot traffic, to provide greater safety and mobility to downtown residents, employees and businesses.

As the City of Wichita finalizes plans for an improved network of downtown streets, your ideas and comments will help shape the future of downtown’s transit and biking networks. Click here to take the survey.

In September 2019, the project team collected feedback on draft concept alternatives at a tent at Open Streets ICT. The team also met with multiple stakeholder groups. An open house event was planned for March 2020 to present final concepts, but due to the pandemic, this event was postponed and converted to virtual engagement opportunities throughout fall 2020.
