City leaders to break ground on GO KC project in Northland
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 15, 2018
City leaders will gather in the Northland on Tuesday, Oct. 16, to kick off a GO KC project on North Oak Trafficway.
The reconstruction of North Oak Trafficway from Indianola Drive to the city limits of North Kansas City includes new pavement, curbs and gutters, transit stop improvements, streetlight upgrades, water lines and storm sewer improvements. The complete street project also brings improved bicycle and pedestrian access with the addition of sidewalks on both sides and a multi-use path for pedestrians and bicycles on the south portion. This multi-use path will connect to bike facilities in the city of North Kansas City.
City officials and project representatives will be at Cascone’s, 3737 N. Oak Trafficway, at 10 a.m. to break ground on the project, which will be completed in late summer 2019.
In April 2017, Kansas City voters approved $800 million in bonds to fund a capital improvements program for streets, sidewalks, flood control and other infrastructure needs over the next 20 years. These North Oak Trafficway improvements are among the first GO KC projects approved by City Council in June 2017.
