179th Street, between US-69 and Metcalf Ave; City of Overland Park, Kansas
The City of Overland Park wanted to improve safety along 179th Street, between US-69 and Metcalf Ave. Their strategy was to reconstruct and redesign this half mile of two-lane county roadway and rural city street. They also planned to streamline the intersection at 179th and Metcalf to maximize traffic flow. Affinis was selected to design this project. The engineering team was tasked with rebuilding two lanes, adding shoulders, and flattening some of the vertical curves to increase sight distance. They also were asked to improve the ditch sections.

By making improvements to 179th Street, this section of roadway is now safer for drivers. It provides a seamless connection to surrounding communities and can be cost-effectively expanded in the future. Completed on-time and within budget, this project was awarded, because it successfully fulfills the city’s goals.
