KCMO Downtown Bike Loop Goes to Bid, Other Bikeway and Infrastructure Projects Announced

The long, long-delayed project to add 13 miles of bike lanes in the Greater Downtown is finally moving forward! The project went out to bid for a construction company recently to start the work this summer. It’s looking hopeful that this project will finally come to fruition later this year, after two years of delays and more than five years of discussion and planning.
