Public meeting set for community comments on old Kaw River bridge uses

A public meeting on what to do with the abandoned Kaw River bridge from Kemper Arena to Kansas City, Kansas, will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 22, at Hale Arena at the American Royal, 1701 American Royal Court, Kansas City, Mo.

A bike and walking trail are among the ideas for the bridge, along with other facilities.

The public meeting is a joint project of the Unified Government and the city of Kansas City, Mo. They received a Mid-America Regional Council grant to pay for a study.

Consultants on the project include el dorado inc., architects; TranSystems, engineers; and inSITE planning and Ecological Placemakers. Engineers also are determining the structural integrity of the bridge.

Hale Arena is located on I-670 to Exit 1B on Genessee and Wyoming street, south on Genessee to the arena. Residents attending the meeting may park in Lot B and on Genessee Street.
