Gladstone Village Center Transportation Plan

The City of Gladstone had created a Master Plan for the downtown Village Center at the same time the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority had recommended increased transit services to help promote regional accessibility. To connect these efforts, the city wanted a workable plan for downtown streets.

Nelson\Nygaard created a multimodal transportation plan to help transform the Village Center into an attractive, walkable destination. Based on the project vision and community input, we recommended street typologies for improved access and mobility within the Village Center and then translated them into conceptual designs for the three most visible streets.
