The project will incorporate elements of the MetroGreen plan.
G13. Included in a CIP? Yes
The City of Edwardsvilles Comprehensive Plan includes 110th St as Primary Thoroughfare connecting I-70 and K-32. Likewise, Riverview Avenue is a key linkage between 98th St & K-7 and connects I-435 and Kansas Avenue to the area of 110th and I-70.
G14. Planning stage: Conceptual Plan
G15. Reviewed by state DOT? No
G16. Right-of-Way acquisition: In process
G17. ROW by local public agency process manual? Yes
G18. Other unique local goals and objectives? Yes
This project supports existing and future development in all three communities and captures prior investments including widening of 110th St north of Riverview, the construction of the 110th St overpass and public and private investment in sanitary sewer
G19. Transportation Disadvantaged Population: Improvements from Village West via 110th and Riverview will continue a long-range plan to provide pedestrian, bicycle, and local street access to disadvantaged populations that live south of I-70 and east of I-435
G20. Relevant Public Engagement: The City updated in comprehensive plan (the "Edwardsville Plan") in 2012. The City has previously retained CFS Engineers to conduct a Corridor Study of Edwardsville Drive/110th St from K-32 to I-70. This study has established proposed ROW for the corridor. The City also has been engaged in the review of several Development Plans. Finally, Village South placemaking standards was recently adopted by the Planning Commission. Each of these activities have engaged the public through public meetings, public hearings and most recently the use of social media.
G21. Planned Public Engagement: The City has adopted several social media mechanism to engage the public in addition to tradition public meetings. For example, social media clips were successfully used as part of our recent PSP Connecting Edwardsville project with more than 10,000 views. The City also has developed an eNewletter (The Hotshot) which is distributed electronically at least twice monthly. The City also uses other social media venues such as Facebook. All of these tools will be utilized as part of the public engagement for this project.
G22. Sustainable Places Criteria: ----Active Transportation/Living---Age in Place------- Complete Street Design---Connected Street Network---Context Appropriate Streets---Diverse Housing Types--- ------------Integrated Trail System--- ----Natural Resources Protection-------Pedestrian-Oriented Public Realm--- ---------------- Transit-Ready Corridors-----
G22.1. Describe CSP relationship: The proposed improvements capitalize on existing roadway corridors to provide greater safety, dedicated facilities for pedestrians and bicycles, improved access for existing residents, progress on the local trail and connectivity plans, while minimizing the disturbance level on the surrounding environment. Improved transportation links will support a wider variety of housing types (higher densities with more convenient access), more commercial services, additional employment, and safe locations to add transit stops for future service for workers and residents.
G23. Implements Sustainable Places Initiatives? No
G24. Serves Regional Activity Center? Yes
Less-Intense and Less-Walkable Centers This project allows for improved connection to the activity centers from the area south of I-70. These improvements allow for existing centers to better serve the adjacent communities and implement multimodal infrastructure to invest in more choices for Wyandotte County residents.
G25. Environmental justice tracts? Yes
Improvements to Riverview Ave east of 110th Street will be the next phase of providing a safe, multimodal connection to EJ tracts east of I-435.
G26. Reduces greenhouse gas emissions? Yes
Improved roadway and intersection facilities will allow for reduced delays, especially for trucks. Sidewalk and multi-use paths will provide more attractive non-motorized transportation options to encourage pedestrians and bicycles.
G27. Natural Resource information: Proposed plan will improve existing roadways rather than construct roadways across vegetated property. Roadway construction pollution controls (located at the top of multiple watersheds) can be coordinated with adjacent private development to provide enhanced resource conservation and a more integrated approach to restoration.
G28. Community Links at Watershaed Scale: As mentioned above, this project is located at the boundaries of multiple watersheds. This project will be constructed to integrate pollution prevention and restoration with adjacent development to reduce the environmental impacts downstream. It is adjacent to some of the most impaired areas - this project provides a more methodical opportunity to allow for meaningful restoration and protection.
G29. Explain local land use or comprehensive plans: Existing comprehensive plans, street plans, and proposed future land use types for both Edwardsville and Bonner Springs support this project.
G30.1 Complies with MARC’s CSP? Yes
G30.2 Exception to the MARC CSP? No This multi-jurisdictional project supports the common desire of all participants to provide multi-modal facilities for collector and arterial routes. Roadway, traffic flow, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and updated construction methodologies
Traveler Type (All Ages & Abilities)
sidewalks and multi-use sidepaths
Mobility Aids:       
multiple lanes to allow share the road and multi-use sidepaths
Transit Riders:       
improved roadway allowing room for transit stops
multi-lane streets
wider lanes and intersection design considering heavy truck traffic
multi-lane streets and access management implementation
improved roadway allowing room for transit stops
Green Streets:

I am concerned that 98th St, the emergency road, is crumbling and isn’t mentioned. Despite warnings & threats tractor trailers continue to use 98th & the ashphalt edging has disintegrated to the point that when pulling over for school buses & trash trucks we’re in danger of slicing open our tire sidewalls. 98th needs to be widened, sewage lines added, and we really, really need to make Kansas & 98th a four way stop again. There is more to Edwardsville than just 110th St.

I am in favor of this project. Should G25 read "...multimodal connection to EJ tracts WEST of I-435?"

This project is crucial to the continued SAFE growth of Edwardsville. The 110th St. intersection with Riverview is currently dangerous. Many near misses report seen by neighbors in addition to recorded accidents. The City has done an excellent job planning and managing the truck traffic on our southern border. This project will do the same for the anticipated truck traffic at this intersection. Currently there are no sidewalks or bike paths in this area, which is slated for commercial and apartment development. Existing plans call for lovely trails to connect the northern city to the southern city. This plan will kickstart that effort. The city council and city planning commission have been excellent stewards of our public dollars. We expect that stewardship will continue with this project. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

I am very much in favor for this project and have confidence our Planning Commission and City Council will do a great job overseeing the project with any other issues that will need addressed as it moves forward. The only issue I have with the City is they can oversee and manage a large project like this but cannot address the flooding of S 4th St. The street is so oval from too many overlays and during a moderate rain, the water that flows off City Hall parking lot meets the high water thats running down the street and we have the flooding of our garage and it has come within a couple feet of flooding our family room. Since none of the City staffing will visit the area during a storm they have no concept of the amount of water when the previous situations collide. Putting a drainage well S of the parking lot and just N on E side of 4th St would DRASTICALLY improve the problem. Also, 4th St from S of railroad tracks to just the S side of Trans & Cliff Ln needs leveled to help the water run down to the water access area S of Trant St. Adding nice Street lights S of Stoplight to Trans would update and Beautify the downtown area of our City. And repainting the outside street lines of Wooden would enable drivers to see the edges of the road when driving both directions, esp where the road narrows suddenly and traffic tires fall off the pavement. These are my approval and suggestions for the City Council and whoever else that needs to be included for projects South of K-32. Thank you for the opportunity to make these suggestions and comments.
