Update: Enough people have already sent emails to City Hall and we don't need anymore at this time. Thank you to everyone who sent a message and made your voice heard! We will post more details soon.
City Hall is repaving 47th Street/Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard from the Plaza to The Paseo ahead of the NFL Draft, and it is an opportunity to close a dangerous gap between three important city-wide bike/ped corridors.
Closing the gap and connecting the Gillham, Brush Creek, and the Trolley Track Trail corridors will:
- Improve safety on a dangerous street identified in City Hall’s Vision Zero High Injury Network
- Complete a citywide corridor from Downtown to Waldo and Marlborough
- Implement an important project on the Bike Master Plan five-year priority list
- Give residents safe and seamless connections to jobs and services in the Downtown-Plaza corridor, the VA Medical Center, Truman Sports Complex, UMKC, and Rockhurst.
