Re: Make Grand Grand

I think I finally understand the plan here. So, they're only going to fund this south of Truman...and it's only going to look like Gillham with just bollards, curb bumpouts & no green paint. Is that it? So we end up with no landscaping, just bumpouts? Yes. No landscaping. Paint and cheap, flims...

Re: Make Grand Grand

Might work if little yellow posts separated the bike lanes from parking lanes but the bigger original mistake was putting a bike lane down a downtown street that has over a dozen bus lines. 100% WTF. Could only work if bike lanes are physically isolated but even then Walnut the better choice. Perso...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

^Customs and Border Protection (the US Immigration services) Does this mean Frontier is going to fly from KC to Mexico? I flew them from STL to Cancun a few weeks back.

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

Chicago is mulling putting a roof over Soldier Field. But I think maybe in the last reno the structure supporting the seating bowl was replaced? If not it would be much older and weathered than Arrowhead. Solider Field, old or new, share almost nothing in common with Arrowhead. Arrowhead was far, f...

Re: Make Grand Grand

They serve a purpose and if they cut down even 2% on the driving the wrong way on a one-way problem we have, it's a win. Expand on this thinking. I don't see how they help with this at all. It prevents people from turning down a one-way in the wrong direction? With the old generic turning lanes, pe...

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

The Lux Living riverfront project is in limbo because the board never took action on its incentive request. There's still discussions underway, but I agree that if it does go away, another developer likely will be found in the not too distant future. https://cityscenekc.com/lux-living-riverfront-pr...

They literally just finished resurfacing a large swath of grand through the CBD. I thought maybe they were going to make some kind of adjustment now while doing that.

Someone older and wiser just needs to take Bunch under their wing and give him some good advice and direction.

Re: 5th and Main (Northwest Corner)

Definitely ridiculous.

The FAA needs to align with modern aviation. They're completely out of touch and off base with their restrictions.
