The lights were put in as a settlement to a lawsuit, so I assume someone will probably have to sue to get them out.beautyfromashes wrote:The first thing that needs to be done is expand 71 into a proper interstate now. I can't imagine what that already busy road will look like with thousands more cars on it at rush hour.

If you fix the lights then the increased capacity will induce that much more demand and jam the highway back up. The only difference will be that Beltmore will have swollen even more by then.

Recent improvements in bus service and streetcar access could help local employees get to work without relying on a car.
The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority recently expanded bus service from the urban core to south Johnson County jobs hubs. You can find more information about those routes at ridekc.org.
And last week, voters approved special sales and property taxes to expand the Kansas City streetcar from downtown to the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
