Complete Reconstruction of 55th St. S. from two lanes with open ditches to 3-lane urban standard (incl. dedicated left turn lane) with curb & gutter, SWS, improved drainage, and a bike path and sidewalks.
55th Street is adjacent to Derby Corporate Park (future major employer and freight generator) which consists of 253 acres platted and zoned as an industrial park and currently houses the City’s Public Works Department. The project connects to both K-15 and Rock Road both of which are on the freight network.
The proposed Bike Path will connect to the currently programmed Aviation Pathway providing connectivity from the Derby Corporate Park to Spirit Aerosystems and the Wichita Bike Path Network.
