The proposed project would upgrade the existing two-lane rural ditch section roadway to City of Andover four-lane urban curb and gutter standards with adjacent 10 foot wide bicycle pedestrian path. Traffic signals at the KTA/21st St. interchange would be included. The project is in an area encouraged for urban growth by the draft Andover Comprehensive Plan 2014-2023 set for adoption in September 2014. Future traffic growth is expected as the 21st St. corridor continues to develop between K-96 and Augusta. The route is a major commuter route for east-west traffic to and from Butler County and the KTA Tollbooth makes the connection between the interstate and local transportation systems.
