General Information

G8.1 Project title: Traffic Signal Fiber Improvements
G8.2 Project description: The goal of this project is to provide fiber connections to various signal corridors within Shawnee. Providing these fiber connections will allow for better signal coordination and maintenance of traffic operations. The primary beneficiaries with be vehicles, although pedestrians and bicyclists will also see a benefit.
G8.3 Project contact: Kevin Manning
Transportation Manager for the City of Shawnee
G1. Project Type: Road & Bridge - Traffic Flow
G2. Funding Stream: CMAQ
G3. TIP Number:
G4. State: Kansas
G5. Project county: 1. Johnson
G6. Project municipality: 1. Shawnee
G7. Multiple agencies / jurisdictions? No
This project will be entirely within the City of Shawnee limits.
G8.4 Purpose and need: Due to several of our signal corridors not having interconnect, we are unable to effectively coordinate these signals, install cameras to view live traffic, or monitor the signals remotely. Fiber connections to these locations will

G17. ROW by local public agency process manual? Yes
G18. Other unique local goals and objectives? No
G19. Transportation Disadvantaged Population: This project will have little to no effect to transportation disadvantaged populations.
G20. Relevant Public Engagement: As part of the Shawnee resident survey, traffic flow and congestion management were identified as a key area for improvement. In response to this survey a Traffic Master Plan was created to help address this need. Part of this plan is developing projects to provide fiber connections to our traffic signals.
G21. Planned Public Engagement: This project will go through our normal project process. Plans must be approved by the City Council. Letting and awarding the bid must also be approved by the City Council. The public will have the opportunity for input at public meetings during both design and prior to construction.
G22. Sustainable Places Criteria: ---------------- ----Connected Street Network----------- ----Green Infrastructure----------- ---------------- ---------------- ------
G22.1. Describe CSP relationship: This project will improve signal timing along three corridors. This will result in lower travel times and congestion along these corridors, which will subsequently have positive environmental impacts.
G23. Implements Sustainable Places Initiatives? Yes
This project will involve fiber installation, which will improve connectivity between signals.
G24. Serves Regional Activity Center? Yes
High-Intensity and More_Walkable Centers The project provides for better signal operations and maintenance near the activity centers.
G25. Environmental justice tracts? No
G26. Reduces greenhouse gas emissions? Yes
This project will provide for better signal operation through improved coordination timings. This will reduce the amount of vehicle stops and will reduce gas emissions.
G27. Natural Resource information: NA
G28. Community Links at Watershaed Scale: NA
G29. Explain local land use or comprehensive plans: The City has a Traffic Master Plan which includes connecting most of our traffic signals to a central network. These three corridors have been identified as high priorities by the time CMAQ funding is available.
G30.1 Complies with MARC’s CSP? Yes
G30.2 Exception to the MARC CSP? No This project will involve connecting signals via fiber, which is green infrastructure so far as it will reduce travel times and reduce emissions.
