What do you think? Proposed amendments to long- and short-range transportation plans

Periodically, MARC seeks public comments on transportation planning efforts and major amendments to transportation plans.

We would like your feedback on:

A proposed amendment to Transportation Outlook 2040 to improve Lone Elm Road from Old 56 Highway to 151st Street in Olathe, Kansas to prepare for future K-7 expansion from a rural 2-lane to 4-lane divided highway.

Transportation Outlook 2040, the region’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), is a blueprint that describes how the region will manage, operate and invest in its multimodal transportation system during the next 25 years.
