Sound Off: Does the city have plans to install a traffic light at George Williams Way and Sixth Street? It’s difficult and dangerous to turn west from George Williams Way, and circuitous to use the light at Stoneridge. Another alternative would be K-10 access from Bob Billings.
Megan Gilliand, a spokeswoman for the city, provided this answer: The intersection of Sixth Street and George Williams Way is not currently planned for signalization. Traffic demands do not currently warrant signalization. The Kansas Department of Transportation is developing plans for an interchange at K-10 and Bob Billings Parkway, which is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2014 or 2015. The city’s multiyear capital plan includes $1 million in debt authority from the city as part of a planned partnership with KDOT on the K-10/Bob Billings Parkway project, which is estimated to cost $15 to $17 million.
