Thrive Allen County
In the Spring of 2022, the MPO will be working with Thrive Allen County to install two demonstration projects in Iola. The goal of the projects is to improve the safety of crosswalks near schools.
The materials to be used for the projects are on loan from the Flint Hills MPO.
Renderings of Demonstration Projects
1 Pedestrian Island - This project will provide improved visibility and a place for people crossing State Street to safely wait if a vehicle fails to yield. In addition it shortens the crossing distance and requires crossing only one direction of traffic at a time.
2 Pedestrian Island - This project will align with the new Science Center crossing to provide better visibility and a shorter, safer crossing for students.
