The City of Kansas City, Missouri has been working towards a solution to ease congestion at the intersection of Independence Ave and the Paseo Blvd. The reconstructed intersection will:
- Reduce crashes at the intersections of Paseo Boulevard and Independence Avenue
- Provide a safer and improved experience for motorist, pedestrian and bicycle travel
- Improve public transit access
- Reduce stormwater runoff to the combined sewer system
The Paseo Gateway intersection project is funded with GO Bonds funds and $5 million in federal surface transportation program dollars.
