Connect Shawnee

Project Description:

"Connect Shawnee" includes three trail connections as shown on the attached exhibit. Two of the connections will provide direct access to the Clear Creek Trail from the Grey Oaks subdivision and the Woodland Park subdivision. The third location will connect the sidewalk on 66th Street to Gum Springs Park. The connections will provide safe, convenient, and cost-effective transportation options to schools and parks.

City was awarded $458,500 in 2015 Kansas Transportation Alternatives (TAP) funds for the project.
