The new “good bridge” is substantially funded, if voters renew PIAC in April.

Great Idea

No, all of the lanes don't end at Broadway - you're misunderstanding.
The new bridge would connect to I-35S and 70W at Quality Hill with a possible exit at Broadway.

Then you whine about "we have no money."
Anything done is going to be costly. Spend enough to do it right.

Maybe. Some people may not think its an appropriate use of PIAC.

I don’t really remember when I said that. And the conversation from when I said that. But I don’t think what I said has to do with what your saying.
Update: I was talking about someone who wanted to make 169 a widened express way from the Northland to downtown. Then build expensive flyover to connect it to pre existing over built roadways. While also bulldozing prime Realestate in the Briarcliff area

I mean I'd much rather MoDot love up to their responsibilities too and I guess they said they would to maintain the status quo...so us wanting something better seems and okay use of PIAC...Northland and south should both see great benefits so that will help too.

Yeah. I don’t disagree. it needs to be done, but there are a lot of local streets that could use that money- so I’m just saying it may not be a signature project to sell the vote on

This is funny, because it's already an expressway here and there's no way that bulldozing anything in this neighborhood would be required.

Then they can vote the renewal down in April. It's a major piece of KCMO infrastructure and a public improvement (the P and I in PIAC).

PIAC renewal will up the street resurfacing to 25% (at the expense of frilly "in district" spending): http://cityclerk.kcmo.org/liveweb/Docum ... yLY6AKvxv8

Now that the Complete Streets ordinance is passed, those resurfacing projects will become Complete Streets projects.

Didn't we just vote for street resurfacing as part of the infrastructure improvement approval a year or two ago? Or was that just for sidewalks?

"arterial street reconstruction" (think wornall road), not resurfacing. up to $150 million on sidewalks.
