More about the project:
The “Better Block” project will be a temporary demonstration project along 8th Avenue in front of the Capitol, including landscaped pocket parks, improved pedestrian crossings, and additional safety elements for bicyclists. The project is being led by a partnership of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, Topeka Landscape, Inc., and volunteers from Topeka Bikeways. The goal is to demonstrate techniques used in other communities to promote active transportation and healthy living.
