Details about the Paseo Bridge Issue
The issue is this: Kansas City has NO bicycle/pedestrian friendly Missouri River Crossing. The Paseo Bridge is up for re-construction at a cost of over $245 million.

Advocates want bike/ped access across the new bridge (a separated bike/ped path that would interface with the area trail network and local streets) but MoDOT is dragging its feet. They need to hear from more community members and community leaders, clearly showing their support for bicycle/pedestrian connectivity in the Kansas City area.
