Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

Sixth Street Trafficway is the east-west one. About mid-frame you can see where Admiral used to diagonal into it.

Is Grand severed in this rendering? That would have been very bad.

Re: Westport

Westport Road to the west of SW Tfwy desperately needs some traffic calming. We walked along it for a couple blocks on Saturday and it was a very uncomfortable experience. To make matters worse, QT currently has the sidewalk closed on the south side east of Mercier for their expansion.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

UMKC still has over half a dozen surface parking lots and several areas of underdeveloped open space. There is plenty of room to build without demolition.

Re: beer.

Cosentino's has a small bottle cooler where you can make your own six-pack. Its stock is rotated enough that I can get a six-pack of new beers, or ones that I haven't had in a while once a month or so.

Re: Google Maps just did another satellite view update for KC

Desktop does show it too, but you have to disable 3D (which they recently changed to the "Globe" icon in the settings.) The 3D imagery is so old it shows the earliest stages of One Light. Thanks for the tip on disabling stupid 3d mode, couldn't find where they moved the setting to on desktop versio...

At least it faces the street and has a transparent, seemingly active, ground floor.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Simply opening up the facades of those buildings has created a dramatic improvement!

Next, I would love to see the street narrowed with wider sidewalks and street trees added.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

According to this 1925 atlas, there were turning wyes at Prospect and Indiana on those lines. There was no through service east of main, though.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

The North Oak/I-29 interchange is a mess. Rebuild it as part of the project.

Has there ever been a diverging diamond / streetcar combo? :lol:

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

Horrible idea that causes unnecessary bus reroutes....our major streets aren't meant for parties first. Unnecessary bus reroutes? On a Saturday? Thankfully the city leaders understand how important community events like Irishfest, Beerfest, Pig and Swig, Family Fun Days, Fiesta, and many others are...

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

It can happen on weekdays, too.

It gets really stupid when Walnut is closed, too. They did that during the Big 12 tournament.
