Inbound from Vinewood--Lake Shawnee to Quincy Station via Expo Center and a Washbun University Stop. The orange route was explained in the previous link and is a short cut back to Qunicy Station incase that would be the extent of the budget for Phase One B.

Backtrack from Vinewood using the same tracks for economy reasons until intercepting 21st and Adams. Then . . .

--W on 21st

--S on Kansas Ave.

--N on VanBuren

--W SW Hampton

Cut right-of-way across Topeka Blvd. directly west into the property of or adjacent to Harley Davidson and following the angle of Sungananga Creek for one of the most unique and appropriate stops in Central Topeka. This would be a major streetcar terminal rather than just an ordinary stop as we have the motorcycle museum and showroom, The Black Dog Restaurant, Eagle's Nest Coffee Shop, a Hair Salon and other features. This would be a hard-to-beat people hangout linking with a streetcar stop on the property.

The right-of-way could continue west over the creek and curve north to intercept the Expo Center and Hotel rather than exit on 21st street and enter on Western. A culvert would be necessary for crossing over the creek.

--Exit Expo Centre complex on "Expoduster Blvd."

--W on 17th

 

ORANGE LINE: The orange line recommends a quick way to get back to Quincy Station in case budget does not permit to include Washburn University during Phase One. It goes through neighborhoods and connects with Central Park--which would likely be developed into a glorified streetcar stop and perhaps with a small parking lot for neighborhood folks to meet the streetcar. Then the route would connect with already laid tracks on 10th street and follow map 15 back to Quincy Station. Street routing for this comprimise is as follows:
