"City of Edgerton Officials to Participate in US-56 Corridor Management Study Public Officials Meeting
Representatives from the Edgerton Governing Body will be participating in an upcoming US-56 Corridor Management Study Public Officials meeting. The meeting is scheduled for January 12, 2010 and will begin around 7:00 pm. The meeting will take place at the Baldwin City Library (800 7th Street). The focus of this Public Officials Briefing is to keep elected officials and local leaders informed on the project’s progress, and to continue to involve them in the planning effort as the study moves forward with the Corridor Management Plan.
The Consultants will provide an overview of transportation elements, access management recommendations, and public involvement to date. You may visit the project website www.us56corridorplan.org for more information and updates throughout the planning process.
KDOT and the Consultants will conduct open house meetings that will be open to the general public on February 9th and 11th. More information regarding these events will be made available closer to the dates of these events.
The US-56 Corridor Management Plan is a 15-month study effort between the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and its partners, Douglas County, Johnson County, the Cities of Baldwin City, Edgerton, Gardner, the Lawrence/Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Mid-America Regional Council. The 22-mile US-56 corridor area spans from US-59 west of Baldwin City in Douglas County to I-35 on the northeast edge of the city of Gardner in Johnson County. "
