KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The high number of car crashes along the Kansas 10 corridor continues after two deadly crashes Monday.
The K-10 corridor stretches east to west and connects Lenexa, Olathe, De Soto, Eudora and Lawrence.
The stretch of the corridor between Renner Boulevard and Woodland Street is historically a hot spot for car wrecks. Just under 570 crashes occurred in this section of K-10 from 2009 to 2018.
The daily traffic volume along K-10 from 2010 to 2040 was predicted to increase by nearly 190% on the segment between Interstate 70 and U.S. 40, according to a 2010 study from KDOT.
The stretch from Ridgeview Road to Interstate 435 was forecasted to increase by more than 100%.
