Also, didn't part of the facade collapse a year ago or so? I think that created some additional unplanned work.

I would bet it's a combination that slower costs less, a crazy complex amount of work and a need to not interrupt daytime users


Slower costs less?

In most any circumstance, the exact opposite proves true.

Slower as in not a rush job. If they made a deal where their work is fit in the extra time around other jobs this could come with a discount and take a lot longer. Not saying that's the case but there's clearly reasons something like this could take so long.

If I'm reading the minutes right the NKC Burlington cycle track project engineering contract was approved yesterday.

This is the 10th Ave to 32nd Ave segment of the bike network and hopefully will help accelerate the KCMO connections to NKC.

I would call this the biggest deal bike lane in the city, over even Grand, because it will show people what can be done.
