Mobility improvements are coming to a busy OP intersection

There’s a new vision for the College Metcalf Corridor that may utilize $1.35 million in public funds to make pedestrian and bicyclist traffic easier.

Get on your feet, KC. Change is coming to one of the busiest intersections in Johnson County — and it’s all for the better of pedestrians.

By partnering with the Kansas Department of Transportation, the City of Overland Park has all but secured $1.35 million in federal funds for a mobility improvement project around the College + Metcalf area. Highlights of the plan include:

  • A linear park on the south side of College Boulevard
  • A path linking College to Summercrest Trail + 112th Street to 115th Street
  • Intersection improvements on Metcalf at College and 110th

After last week’s recommendation by the OP City Council Public Works Committee, the project will now face the Overland Park City Council for approval. You can check out the fine print for yourself.

Construction on the intersection + its proposed improvements are set to begin in 2026.
