Open House to be held Tuesday to discuss U.S. 71/Bruce R. Watkins corridor

Northeast News
November 26, 2012

An open house will be held Tuesday, Nov. 27, to discuss the recommendations for enhancing transit service in the I-70 and Rock Island corridors, and receive feedback on the most recent analysis for the U.S. 71/Bruce R. Watkins corridor.  The open house is being hosted by Jackson County, Mo., Mid-America Regional Council, Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and Kansas City, Mo.

The Jackson County Commuter Corridors Alternatives Analysis and U.S 71 Transit Study have evaluated many options during the last year to identify the types of transit service the community wants that are feasible in these corridors, the routes they should follow, and financial strategies to support construction and ongoing operations. The studies have been carefully coordinated with each other and the streetcar project in downtown Kansas City, Mo. All are part of a comprehensive effort to implement the region’s Smart Moves vision for expanded and enhanced transit service.

Representatives from the Jackson County Commuter Corridors Alternatives Analysis and the U.S. 71 Transit Study will answer questions and discuss issues at the event. Representatives from the Kansas City Downtown Streetcar project and the Mid-America Regional Council’s bicycle and pedestrian programs will also be available. Open house attendees will have a chance to win prizes and receive giveaways from local River Market businesses.

The open house will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at River Market Event Place, 140 Walnut St., Kansas City, Mo.
