The Kansas City bi-state area now has a new 30-year, $18 billion transportation plan that factors in such broad policy goals as climate change and regional employment growth.
The Mid-America Regional Council Board of Directors, the Kansas City region’s federally designated metropolitan planning organization, formally adopted the long-range plan earlier this week.
“Transportation Outlook 2040″ lists the priority of major investments in roadways, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, transit, and projects that support neighborhood centers.
What is in the plan? How long did it take to put together? How much did it cost? What makes this plan different than previous plans? Will it work? Missouri Watchdog is investigating.
