Re: New Broadway Bridge

Has anybody seen any actual work done on the bridge since it was closed? I drive northbound every day around 2:45 and I've never seen any sign of workers, though much of the work may be needed on the underside of the bridge.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Not that it should be a priority right now, but has anybody ever considered a circular rail line on 10th/13th and Washington/Charlotte? It would be within a block of two current streetcar stops on the south side and one block of a stop on the north side while connecting Municipal Auditorium/Bartle H...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Just so I know for next time, does this include the big lot at 3rd and Grand (by the bus stops)? I usually park there and take the streetcar to events at the Music Hall instead of dealing with the cluster that is Barney Allis garage. Also the article said weekends would be free, is there any indicat...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Last paragraph is right on the button I think that what hurts the airport issue most among this demographic is that when they do fly, they fly to large, inconvenient airports. Many people haven't been to great airports our size like Austin, Dallas Love Field, Denver, etc, so they don't even know wh...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I looked through the B&M proposal but had a hard time finding any actual renderings. Can somebody point me to where in the 300+ pages they are?

Of the 3 proposals I like AECOM's "iconic" terminal best I think.

Re: Downtown Airport (MKC)

I believe almost anytime you see a 737/757 sized plane sitting out on the tarmac it's a baseball team in town to play the Royals. It is very frequently a Delta plane but I've seen others as well, and you'll notice they're almost exclusively out there when the Royals are at home. The 757 that's out t...

I'm pretty sure they did plan it. Look for the circle drives to need repaved right as winter starts, just a few weeks before a vote.

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

If I still lived in the Professional Building I'd be kind of bummed about that since I used to park in that lot. Alas, such is the price of progress and I'm super happy to see the Ambassador doing well. My wife and I stayed there once and it's a bit of a hidden gem in the downtown area. Looking a bi...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Go walk on the people movers for miles at a time at Detroits new airport, then come back and talk about convenience. I'm pretty sure it takes 45 minutes to walk 1/3rd the length of that massive over-ly sized, food and retail laden airport. It was clearly built to be a mall first, and airport second...

Got this email today, ouch: We want to let you know that the price of your Fiber 1000 + TV plan will be increasing from $130/month to $150/month starting with your July bill.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

It has come in handy for us a few times when we've gone downtown for something and can't find parking. Then we just head to the River Market or Union Station and park there and use the street car to get where we need to go. River Market+Streetcar >>> Parking at Barney Allis or Kauffman, in my opini...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I get why the other engineering firms (BNIM quoted in that article) might not like it, but if that is what it freaking takes then I'm all for B&M taking this project on. It may be necessary after the ballot item in November (insanely and stupidly) fails.

Anecdote #2 from me for the year. My wife and I just got back from Cancun and to book our flights we flew out on one airline (Delta) and back on another (American).

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

The 2026 world cup will have 48 teams and 60 games to host. 40 games in the US works out to at least 12, but possibly 14, sites. Arrowhead was one of 18 venues submitted with the 2022 bid so it's certainly a possibility that KC could make the cut - especially if they were considered a pair host with...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

there's 8 other bridges. Some people just have to detour onto one of them. Care to name the 8? There's two bridges, six lanes of traffic each way, that serve as a reasonable detour for the tens of thousands who take that bridge every single day. It was a sizeable annoyance when they closed the viad...
