Ensuring high quality bike/pedestrian access is a core part of the project and is available on opening day
The KC Streetcar Authority is currently studying a proposed extension to Berkley Riverfront Park. This would add streetcar tracks to the Grand Avenue viaduct, and important bicycle and pedestrian connection between Downtown and the riverfront.
While there are some ideas for adding a new bike/ped path alongside the current viaduct, we are concerned that it may not get built right away or might take scared resources from other important bike/ped projects in the city. We provided input to the folks leading the riverfront extension study, and are monitoring the project very closely.
