This project would improve the bikeway connections to and from Wichita State University. The improvements will help to make WSU more attractive to prospective students, strengthen connections with the surrounding community, and improve conditions in a location where people are more likely to bicycle. Below is a listing of the bikeway improvements undertaken as part of this project.
- 17th Street Bike Lanes, I-135 Path to Oliver/Redbud Path: this improvement would continue the new bike lanes on 17th Street from Hillside to the Canal Route Path at I-135. The project would include a road diet along 17th Street and crossing improvements at key intersections.
- Fairmount Neighborhood Bikeways: this improvement would add bikeways on streets through the Fairmount Neighborhood and crossings at major roadways in order to strengthen connections between WSU, the Redbud Path, and other bikeways.
- Belmont / Fountain Bikeway: this improvement would add an on-street bikeway to connect the WSU campus to the K-96 Path.
