    This project focuses on improving mobility and transportation options along the 63rd Street Corridor in Kansas City, Missouri. This project will identify mobility and connectivity solutions at three activity centers along 63rd Street located at the intersections of Wornall/Main (Brookside Shops), Oak, and Troost/Rockhill.

    The common concern along the corridor is that vehicular traffic poses a risk to other modes of transportation. Vehicle speed, excess roadway capacity, conflicting turning movements, gaps in sidewalks and trails, and other deficiencies make pedestrian and bicycle transportation difficult. Although there are many very walkable/bikeable places within the project area, 63rd Street serves or is perceived by many as a barrier.

    This project will evaluate transportation conditions, develop recommendations for improvements at key activity centers, create guidelines for future improvements connecting the centers, and create a toolbox of streetscape elements for use along the corridor.
