GO KC event for 22nd/23rd Street
KCMO celebrates roadway improvements on 22nd/23rd St. Corridor from Brooklyn to Chestnut
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 17, 2019
City officials, project partners and neighborhood leaders on Wednesday celebrated the completion of about $1.2 million of improvements on 22nd/23rd Street, which extended from Brooklyn to Chestnut and provides an important corridor between Interstate Highway 70 and Highway 71.
“We are excited to celebrate the completion of improvements on the 22nd/23rd Street Corridor,“ said Sherri McIntyre, Director of Public Works. “This is not only an improved roadway corridor for vehicles between the highways; the project also added Complete Streets improvements like new sidewalks and bike lanes — another great example of a successful GO KC project!”
The improvements, part of the GO KC projects that started in fall 2017, included reconstructed pavement, realigned roads, new curb and gutter, new sidewalks, bike lanes, relocated water main, storm and sanitary sewer upgrades and landscaping.
In April 2017, Kansas City voters overwhelmingly supported an $800 million capital improvements program to remake the city’s infrastructure over the next 20 years. There are about 40 projects in some stage of construction. Visit KCMO.gov/gokc to track progress on other GO KC infrastructure projects.
