Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

I will be in Milwaukee this week and plan on riding the street car. One thing I am disappointed is that it does not run by any of the 2 sports arenas. Its about 5/6 blocks away. Seems like a huge opportunity missed not putting it by arenas. It would be nice to park a mile away and take the streetca...

Re: OFFICIAL - Crossroads Westside

Originally, wasn't the plan to vacate part of Cesar Chavez in front of this apartment and combine it with the grass island to create a new 'Triangle Park'? Was this scrapped? I often see both sides of this part of the street used for parking automobiles. The vacation request was on the 10/31 CPC ag...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

When they first announced their move into car sharing a few months ago, they indicated they would launch it in all 125 of their markets. That obviously includes KC. However, KCMO has not prepared for "free floating" car share at all and is still designing a pilot program for scooters (and facilitati...

Several media people responded to my tweet about this activity, but I'm guessing the developer isn't talking to them?

Official policy has always been to only stop when requested if there is no one waiting at the stop.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Heard tonight that an "underground garage" is in the works for 18th and Oak. I assume this would be on the surface lots owned by SMG. The person who told me this was sort of singularly obsessed with parking, so who knows what the full development would look like.

...the parking lot at 13th & Wyandotte will close permanently at the end of this month. That's where the new office tower would go, right? Yep. It was unclear though whether it's closing for site prep or to be a staging area for the work on the other two buildings. Oh, I bet it's construction stagi...
