Chouteau Parkway Transformation to Begin in 2012

Post by FangKC » Fri Mar 11, 2011 4:49 am

Chouteau Parkway will be widened to 4 lanes and have a median added from Armour Road (210 Highway) to I-35.  The plan includes bike lanes.  Some buildings along the parkway will be purchased and demolished--mostly the strip north of Parvin Road. Work starts in 2012.

There is no fifth destination.

Alas, this project has already forced Diamond Joe's to close and the venerable Donut King to move to North Kansas City in new strip mall. The Donut King flashing lights signage will sorely be missed.

Diamond Joe's is closed? Terrible.

What's sad is that the City/Parks department deem it necessary to had no commericial real estate along Parkways. Searcy Creek, Line Creek, and Shoal Creek parkways are prime examples.

This area already has barely no basic services such as grocery, restaurants, or other shops.

Now just south of the Target there will be a four lane road with NOTHING on it.
It will simply become a highway for those traveling to Harrahs or across the river.

Ground broken for Francois Chouteau Native American fountain near intersection with Parvin. Will have simulated limestone bluff with waterfall, pools and multiple bronze figures. Nice bauble for a not upscale part of town.
