The public is being invited to give input on the Arkansas River Crossing-95th Street South (ARC95) Study.

Meetings will be held to discuss the needs and feasibility of improving the 95th Street corridor in southern Sedgwick County. The study area includes 95th Street South between Greenwich Road and Meridian Avenue, with an initial focus on the section between Woodlawn Boulevard and Broadway Avenue.

Earlier studies have identified the area as having the most potential to support future growth needs, according to a news release sent Wednesday. The current study will also consider previous recommendations for a new bridge over the Arkansas River.

“The goal here is to refine what those recommendations mean, in terms of impact and cost,” Sedgwick County Commissioner Tim Norton said in the release.

The first meeting will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Derby Public Library. A second meeting will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18., at the Haysville Public Library. Formal comments will be made at both meetings.

More information on the study is at www.arc95study.com.
