Re: New Broadway Bridge

Also, it's surprising to me but I see a lot of folks walking down the median - far too many. Always wonder where one would be walking to/from along that stretch. It's residents of the Holiday apartments (the former motel on Harlem Rd). Many of them don't have cars, and bus service there is virtuall...

Re: 14th and Wyandotte Tower

It looks like someone submitted a 311 report on December 10 about the fence removal and an inspector went out on December 19. Such a hazard should not be taking this long to resolve.

Seeing Pickleman’s advertising January 6th opening with some test runs next week.
I didn't see anybody inside, but there was a pickle standing out front at lunchtime today handing out flyers (or menus).

Did the advertising specify a year or did they leave that part open-ended? :lol:

The stats are increasingly going up YOY.
Sept is an oddball month, decreasing each year. Maybe that month happens to have fewer events each year.

Between Ren Fest, American Royal, and Plaza Art Fair, it's a lot of big events outside Streetcar coverage area.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I can't get on board with removing the North Loop stop. It doesn't get a lot of traffic at the moment, but if and when that sea of parking gets developed it should, and having the stop there would seem to incentivize said development to some degree. So I say keep it. Ditto. I actually use this stop...

Re: North Kansas City

Iron District's hours might be just as big a threat to its survival as opening just before winter. The hours are confusing... especially the bizarre gap on Saturdays. Then each individual vendor can set their own hours within those already limited and confusing hours. So there's really no clear way ...
