Kansas City as of summer 2016 is halfway through a major streetscape project on 20th street. Five blocks that make up an important segment of the Crossroads Arts District. The streetscape improvements include removing several lanes of traffic, widening sidewalk with a network of rain gardens, and new bike lanes. The extensive network of green infrastructure along the sidewalk captures stormwater from the sidewalks and roadways for the length of the streetscape improvement project. The widened sidewalk allows for pathways through the middle of the rain gardens, with bridges connecting pathways, allow pedestrians to walk through and observe the the green infrastructure on dry and rainy days.
