Confluence, Schwab-Eaton and BG Consultants have completed 30% designs for the identified corridors and developed cost estimates. The City Commission will be asked to provide feedback on their preferences for moving forward with any or all of the improvements and whether they would like to see a construction phasing and financing plan.
The North Campus Corridor is an area bounded on the south by Claflin Road, on the west by College Avenue, on the north by KSU property north of Kimball Avenue, and on the east by North Manhattan Avenue.
The city and Kansas State University are exploring improvements to the area to support the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility construction, as well as additional economic development opportunities in the corridor.
The city's involvement in the project includes infrastructure, streetscape, landscape, signage, and pedestrian and bicycle improvements in the area.
