Maize USD 266 to contribute funding for traffic light near Maize South High

Maize USD 266 will contribute $50,000 for the traffic light at 37th Street North and Tyler Road near Maize South High School. This has been an ongoing effort with the City of Wichita to improve safety and traffic flow in that area, affected by school-related traffic and challenges with the four-way stop. Traffic patterns thus far have not met a threshold for the City of Wichita numbers to budget those project improvements, prompting the collaborative approach between the various entities. During a past meeting, several Maize School Board members said such improvements are a necessity, not a luxury.
