During this yearlong project, the City will collect data to better understand the current conditions of what was once a state highway, as well as analyze future travel demands and expected land uses along this corridor. In addition to evaluating the various transportation modes currently being used along Platte Avenue, the study will recommend improvements in each of corridor's distinct neighborhoods as it serves as a vital east/west connector for those who live, work and enjoy our community.
