Re-Imagine 75th Street
A Pedestrian, Streetscape, and Amenity Corridor Design Guide

The City of Shawnee, in partnership with the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), is working on a streetscape revitalization project called Re-Imagine 75th Street that will focus on the corridor of 75th Street between Switzer Road and Quivira Road.


The design guide and transportation vision will:

  • Improve bicycle and pedestrian connections along the corridor.
  • Beautify the corridor by implementing new streetscape amenities that are sustainable and environmentally sensitive.
  • Implement new transit facilities that provide a safe and convenient environment that encourage multimodal transit.
  • Be comprehensive to allow for the integration of future development opportunities.

Corridor Map 

The overall vision will help create a unique identity and sense of community for the 75th Street corridor. Recommendations will provide guidance to enable safe access for all users including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders. The study will provide both short-term recommendations that can be incorporated into the planned 2020 project as well as long-term guidance to advance the vision.

Timeline


We want to hear from you! Gathering input from our community – residents, business owners and patrons – is critical to the success of this project. There are many opportunities for you to provide us with your feedback over the course of the study.
