Reports on Bike & Pedestrian Safety & Infrastructure

Roeland Park adopted the Pedestrian & Bicycle Infrastructure Strategy in 2017 to incorporate a program of pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure improvements in the City of Roeland Park, KS. It presents a deliberate and phased approach to building a safer and more interconnected network of pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Since 2017, Roeland Park has installed numerous areas of missing sidewalk segments when completing construction projects and to prioritize projects in a strategy focused lens to create a network of sidewalks that are safe, comfortable, continuous, and that connect important destinations. This strategy also identifies a priority bicycle network that synthesizes several planning efforts and identifies specific infrastructure improvements for different segments of the network.

This map shows several locations where sidewalks have been added around Roeland Park as well as bike lane facilities that have been incorporated to increase other alternative methods of transportation.
