Study Will Focus on Expanding Opportunities For Walkers and Bicyclists

City Manager Matt Allen says there are many reasons exploring this option makes sense.

Professional Engineering Consultants of Wichita has entered into a contract with the city to do the study. City Manager Matt Allen says this is an easy solution that will not break the bank.

Looking at the options isn’t just about promoting healthier lifestyles.
