KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City is ready to move forward on a plan that could transform the city’s bike infrastructure.

Last week, city leaders briefed a council committee on the details of the long-term plan, which calls for using 658 miles of roadway.

The plan includes a price tag of between $386-$418 million, funded through a variety of funding sources including GO bonds and the renewal of the sales tax.

In this week’s 41 Files Kansas City podcast , host Taylor Hemness is joined by Joe Blankenship and Beth Breitenstein of the Kansas City Planning Department to talk details of the plan and what’s next.

Blankenship says organizers are hopeful of moving the plan forward this Spring.

The city has scheduled a series of public forums for the public to learn more about the BikeKC master plan.
