Please stop by this public meeting to support the next phase of the bi-state Complete Street project for Southwest Boulevard and Merriam Lane. The Unified Government needs to hear your support for prioritizing bike/ped safety over car parking.
A photo of real, live bike lanes on Southwest Boulevard hows that the City is fixing lane its striping mistake and delivering the promised bike route. Sharrows still to come and parking issues remain unresolve.
Last summer we asked local cities to Put Paint to Pavement for more bike lanes and crosswalks. Over one thousand people sent postcards to their mayors, and this summer two cities are responding to your requests. Southwest Boulevard is on the verge of becoming a truly bistate bike commuter corridor with bike lanes on the way in both KCK and KCMO.
KCK's plan for adding bike lanes to the Southwest Boulevard and Merriam Lane corridor is moving towards construction this fall, but some businesses along the street are raising concerns. Please speak up so that KCK leaders hear strong public support for bike lanes.
