Roeland Park is in the process of identifying priorities for the planned 2020 reconfiguration of Roe Blvd. from I-35 to Johnson Drive with the goal of increasing pedestrian safety and comfort.

As part of the visioning phase, the city has put together conceptual designs for a number of key points along the street.

Here’s a look at a design for the intersection of 53rd Street and Rosewood, with would include a new median island with crosswalks allowing pedestrians to travel east to west across the street:

Here are two different options for the entrance to the CVS and vet center in the business district. Both include an eight-foot path on the west side of the street that’s buffered from Roe Blvd.:

Here’s 50th Terrace and Roe Lane, which could include several new crosswalks and pedestrians islands, as well as new medians to sort traffic:
