One of the mobility-related issues that has come up in the debates for the June 18th KCMO Mayoral and City Council election is the idea of a city-level Department of Transportation, or DOT.

It could be especially effective in addressing long standing community frustration with the pace of improvements for people who walk, bike, and use transit.

As we approach the one year anniversary of Kansas City’s first protected bike lanes on Armour Boulevard in KCMO, data from Public Works and the KCPD shows that traffic crashes are down, bike traffic is up, and car traffic is calmer.

This data and the City’s willingness to make iterative improvements will help ensure lessons learned on Armour are used in the new bike plan and future bike lane projects.
