How is the extra traffic going to be accommodated?
A traffic study was completed in 2011 before the Northern phase of the Woodside Village project broke ground.
This study considered the impact of the then proposed construction of a mixed-used development and health club renovations on the surrounding roadway network near Rainbow Boulevard and 47th Place in Westwood, Kansas. The traffic study recommended the installation of a new traffic signal at 47th Place and Rainbow Blvd, which was installed in mid 2016.
Since that time, the City's Public Works Director, along with KCK's team, and KDOT (the Kansas Department of Transportation) staff have been in constant contact monitoring the operations of the newly installed traffic signal on Rainbow Blvd, and its impact on traffic flow.
