A presentation was given at 5:45 p.m. During the meeting, attendees were able to review exhibits that describe the preferred alternatives and recommendations for the corridor. The exhibits are based on community input from the previous meetings and new data analyses. KDOT staff was present to listen to concerns and answer questions.

Project Description

KDOT is developing a corridor management plan for K-254 in Sedgwick and Butler counties. The area includes 22 miles of K-254 from Wichita on the west to El Dorado on the east (and within 1 mile of the highway).

The goal of the K-254 Corridor Management Plan is to set forth an overall land-use and access-management strategy and identify various transportation improvements to keep traffic moving safely and efficiently as development occurs. The planning process began in the summer of 2023 and will continue through the summer of 2024.
