Advocacy Alert: Woodsweather Road sidewalks and bike lanes

Cyclists and pedestrians needed to speak up for sidewalks and bike lanes on new Woodsweather Road bridge in Downtown Kansas City, MO.

The City is drafting plans to replace part of Woodsweather Road just west of the Broadway Bridge. It’s a key Bike KC route and important pedesrian and bicycle connection between the West Bottoms, River Market, and Downtown Loop.

Woodsweather Road Open House
Tuesday, March 29th, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Faultless Starch Building
1009 West 8th Street (in the West Bottoms)
Bus #106/Quindaro stops two blocks north at Woodsweather and Madison.

There are two simple things that people can request:

1. Sidewalks on both sides of the bridge.

2. Bike lanes in both directions.

This bridge serves a very important transaportation and job access function, so it’s critical bicyclists and pedestrians are included in the design of the new bridge. If you want better bicycling and walking in this part of town, please take a few minutes to stop by this open house and ask for it.
