We, the citizens of the town of Junction City, petition the City and the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) to construct a Multi-Use Trail along 8th Street (K-18) between Rucker Rd. and Spring Valley Rd.

There is currently no safe trail on the 8th Street corridor between Rucker Rd. and Spring Valley Rd. The existing terrain has rock outcroppings and steep embankments that cause citizens to walk or bike in the roadway. Citizens also must walk in the roadway on the overpass bridge spanning US 77. With the Middle School on the west side of US 77 and the High School on the east side of US 77, there are many children at risk walking or biking along this corridor. Besides access to and from school, this route is utilized for cross country training and provides access to Helland Park where science teachers are educating their classes. It is a vital connection for the community, joining the east and west areas of Junction City split by US 77.

With KDOT's proposed improvements of the K-18 (8th Street) & Spring Valley Rd. Intersection and the K-18 (8th Street) & US 77 Interchange, now is the time to include a multi-use trail for pedestrians and cyclists to safely travel 8th Street.
