Sedgwick Co. To Hold Final Rounds Of Public Meetings For 95th Street Corridor Project

May 11, 2017

The third and final round of public meetings for the 95th Street corridor project in southern Sedgwick County will take place in the next few days.

One meeting will be held on Thursday in Derby, while another one will happen on Tuesday in Haysville.

The county launched a long-range transportation study on improvements to 95th Street South that could possibly include adding a bridge over the Arkansas River.

Commissioner Jim Howell says the road improvements could support future growth needs.

"That project is a fairly significant project to the public in and around the county," Howell says.

More than 200 people have attended meetings or posted comments or questions online since the study began in early 2016.

Thursday’s public meeting is from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at the Derby Public Library.

The May 16 public meeting will be at 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at the Haysville Community Library.
