Wilson County Projects

Demonstration Projects

In the Spring of 2022, the MPO will be working with Wilson Medical Center, the City of Neodesha, and the Wilson County Active Transportation Board to install two demonstration projects in Neodesha. The goal of the projects is to improve the safety of crosswalks.  
 

The materials to be used for the projects are on loan from the Flint Hills MPO.
