Closing sidewalks might not be a big deal to you and me as far as effort to avoid it but sidewalks aren't just for able bodied people...and nobody in this city can do a s...

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

I agree the event traffic is the main cause...but all of this feeds into the problem. People coming down for events having less options of getting to their destination pushes them onto main.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

Demanding better out of our quality of life...yes even during construction...isn't comical. It should be our standard that every construction project respects the already existing environment. If a company doesn't respect that lets get someone in here that does. I just got back from New York and wal...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Was in midtown today and saw a middle eastern place opening next to Taco Bell on linwood.....with walk up windows....why isn't something like this locating in the crossroads or river market where there is a ton more foot traffic than on 31st? Zaina for example should open a walk up window. edit...fi...

LOL, oh goodness....Cordish's decisions aren't above reproach. They don't need lanes of traffic to build a 15 story building.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

No new structure? Where we going to store 805-810? Seems you'd want some bail off spot either 31st'ish or 51st.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

The district never shuts down Truman, unless it's construction related. The other closures are always going to happen because pedestrian safety is priority number 1. Not to mention, several events/festivals are held on the streets. Urbana, Family Fun Days, Beer Fest, Pig and Swig and the list goes ...
