TOPEKA - Topekans are being encouraged to join members of the Highway 24 corridor study consulting team, to voice their opinions and make suggestions for the highway corridor. A public forum will be held Wednesday afternoon at Seaman High School on NW Rochester Road. Area residents and business reps can stop by at their convenience from 3pm until 8pm to sit and talk openly with team members.
The study of the Highway 24 corridor is being done to examine land use and growth, flow of traffic, general mobility, and accessibility to property and aesthetic appeal. The study's purpose is getting input from the community to keep the North Topeka area safe, efficient and vibrant.
The study will cover almost ten miles of U.S. Highway 24 from the East K-4 interchange to West Huxman Road. It is managed and funded by the Metro Topeka Planning Organization, and the state Department of Transportation. For more information, go to: www.hwy24corridorstudy.com.
