Draft 79th Street Corridor Concept
This figure illustrates the overall concept for 79thStreet. Additional details follow for the various segments of the corridor.
Lamar to Glenwood
From Lamar to Glenwood the proposal includes a shared-use path on the north side of the street and a sidewalk on the south, with on-street parking near the school.
Glenwood to Metcalf
From Glenwood to Metcalf three options are presented - a shared-use path on the north with no sidewalk on the south, wider sidewalks on both sides, or a shared-use path on the north and a sidewalk on the south that may require additional right-of-way or easements.
Downtown Overland Park (Metcalf to Conser)
High-visibilty crosswalks, raised intersections, back-in parking and removal of right-turn lanes at Metcalf are proposed for consideration.
