Cleaver was a leader in bringing back earmarks, so he would probably be the winner. If it were named after Hawley it would probably be burned down.
Blunt is here for another year and a half. Could be a good legacy project.

I wonder if that's the remake of the "alphabet soup" of exits? Potential stimulus project?

Probably not after 1/6. Imagine it would create a whole ton of anger.

That big square building at 4th and Broadway was constructed fairly recently. I'm surprised they aren't taking down the Landmark Lofts too, since it will be an island surrounded by viaducts when the new bridge is done. Who will want to live there in basically an interstate interchange?

According to Twitter, the American Jobs Act's transportation funding will be competitive (like TIGER/BUILD):

We'll need a compelling application, but we've done well in previous rounds -- KC has received three grants from TIGER/BUILD.

There’s a 100% chance modot tries to dump their responsibility onto the Fed’s right?

Like no one thinks we’re going to get anything better?

But doesn't the state have to finance part of the project to get matching federal dollars?

Applications for 8, 60ft tall drilling rigs have been submitted to, and determined for approval by, the FAA. I'm only posting the link to one application since they're all the same.
