Wichita city leaders considering future of McLean Boulevard

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A lot of excitement has been brewing about Wichita's new baseball stadium.  But for drivers who travel on a stretch of road in Delano it could effect more than just game nights. 

Designs released last week show the stadium sitting right on the banks of the Arkansas River.  No McLean Boulevard could be seen.  And that wasn't a mistake. 

"We really don't know what's going to happen with McLean," said Mayor Jeff Longwell.  "There's been conversations about making McLean a two-lane road instead of a four-lane".

City leaders think they can narrow the road and Longwell insists the designs are preliminary.  While some worry it could affect traffic to the Advanced Learning Library, other street options are being considered.
