Public Information Meeting #1

Public Sees a Need

A public open house was held on July 20th from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at the Sedgwick County Extension Center (21st and Ridge Road). The intent of the meeting was to provide information regarding the research completed to date as well as receive feedback from participants regarding issues and goals for improvements to the interchanges of I-235 and US-54/400 (Kellogg Ave.), I-235 and Central Avenue, and the portion of I-235 in between these two interchanges. Approximately 35 people attended the open house including citizens, business and property owners, and City officials including the City Fire Chief and two City Councilpersons. The information that was reviewed at the meeting is included in this section of the website.

Comments Received

The comments below represent a sample of the actual comments received from attendees of the Public Information Meeting.

"Although I-235 /Kellogg has the highest need for change due to safety, I-235/Central gets backed up and congested due to the stop light."

"Consideration need to be given to how improvements can be made with as little impact on the flow of traffic."

"I see lots of pedestrian and bicycle - and a few in motorized wheelchairs - traffic on Central. I hope planners will make safe passage for our runners, walkers and riders. The walkways need to be separated from the traffic."

"Both interchanges have issues; Kellogg and I-235 has weaving concerns and Central and I-235 has issues most pointedly with EB to NB traffic and NB to WB traffic."
