Community members attend final open house for 40 Highway corridor

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City is one step closer to finding out what will happen to the area around 31st and Prospect.

Monday night, community members shared their ideas during a final open house.

The project will focus on redevelopment for three key intersections along the 40 Highway corridor -- including Prospect Avenue, Noland Road and Adams Dairy Parkway.

"We talked about how 31st Street could just have a center turn lane and one east direction. This could just use some paint and take a couple years, and not cost too much money. Something like putting an express bus down Linwood all the way down east, towards the eastern suburbs, this could take a lot more years -- maybe five or ten," said project manager Britt Palmberg.

Those who were unable to attend the final open house can still add comments to an online discussion.
