If you've been waiting on Kansas City to become more bike friendly, you're not alone.

Wednesday morning, the city's public works department asked for $600,000 to improve roads for bicyclists on the Downtown Loop Bike Project, which stretches from midtown to downtown.

Ralph Davis, deputy director of Kansas City Public Works, said this bike project has been stalled out since 2011, largely because it was using federal funding. . . .

People in favor of the bike lanes said it will lead to a healthier Kansas City, and say it's been a long time coming.

"Every year, it's another disappointment because they don't happen. People are just very frustrated, but we think it's moving in a positive direction," explained Eric Rogers, the executive director of Bike Walk KC.
