City of Kansas City leaders gathered in Kansas City, Platte County  to kick off a reconstruction project on NW Prairie View Road. 2nd District Councilmembers Dan Fowler and Teresa Loar  joined project representatives and partners at the August 6th groundbreaking.

“This project is another example of patience and tenacity; a project many years in the making,” said Alicia Stephens, PCEDC Ex The  Prairie View Road realignment will address the serious safety and traffic flow concerns at the I-29 intersection.  The TDD’s along the alignment  have been an excellent use of an infrastructure financing tool.”
