Open house to showcase Vine Street corridor improvements

Hays, Kan. — The City of Hays will host an open house to provide information to the public on Vine Street corridor improvements, including proposed roundabout solutions. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12 at The Venue at Thirsty’s, 2704 Vine Street. Refreshments will be served.

City of Hays staff and transportation engineers will be on hand to provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the North Vine Street Corridor Project. Detailed models of proposed changes will be on display to show the capabilities of roundabouts and how they improve safety for vehicles and pedestrians.

City of Hays staff and community leaders have been working to overcome the logistical challenges in the North Vine Street corridor for decades. The area between 32nd/33rd Streets and I-70 was not designed to accommodate the amount of traffic currently experienced.

City staff and engineers have been working with KDOT on a concept that would replace the traffic signals in the corridor with roundabouts in order to improve traffic flow, reduce the number and severity of accidents, allow for better flow to and from businesses, and accommodate future redevelopment in the area.

Vine Street corridor traffic simulation videos and traffic studies can be found at For additional information on the open house event, contact City Hall at 785-628-7320.
