Bridges and roads are the backbone of any community. We rely on them to take us safely from our homes to work, to get our children to and from school, and to transport goods and services throughout our region, the country and the rest of the world. For many years, the County has participated in or led efforts to study the transportation needs of our community, specifically focusing on areas where improvements can lead to economic growth.
The South Area Transportation Study identified the 95th Street Corridor, from Greenwich Road to Meridian Avenue, as an area where improved access and mobility could support future growth needs. The study also included a recommendation for a new bridge to be constructed over the Arkansas River. The goal of the Arkansas River Crossing and 95th Street Study (ARC95) is to further define those recommendations. Improvements in southern Sedgwick County could lead to an increase in economic growth and higher quality of life for people who reside in the area.
The ARC95 study encompasses an 8.9-mile corridor from Meridian Avenue to Greenwich Road in southern Sedgwick County. The purpose of this study was to develop a long-range plan for the 95th Street corridor. At the end of the report are recommendations, including budget considerations, intended to guide future plans.
