The SLT alignment is suggested at 32nd Street. Where exactly is that and how far south is it from 31st Street?
According to preliminary designs by HNTB, the engineering firm hired by the Kansas Department of Transportation, a 32nd Street route would run through the area of the wetlands that currently is home to the boardwalk. That area is 600 to 800 feet south of the existing 31st Street.
Under the plan currently being considered, the portion of 31st Street between Haskell Avenue and Louisiana Street would be removed and rebuilt in the same area. Plans call for the new portion of 31st Street to be 450 to 550 feet south of the existing 31st Street area.
