Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

there was no formal study of providing the downtown streetcar dedicated right-of-way. there were, of course, studies for light rail (1998 and 2008?) with dedicated ROW in the same corridor . note of caution: the number of at-grade crossings in those previous studies would also have been a challenge ...

Re: OPUS at Broadway Blvd and Westport Road
