KANSAS CITY FRIDAY REDUX: BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE MAKING A COMEBACK, LOOK AT OLD SCHOOL TOLLS ON BROADWAY BUCK O'NEIL BRIDGE!!!
Locals find it hard to imagine tolls on the crumbling Broadway Bridge . . . But the fact is that the population boom in that direction didn't really start until the mid-80s and before that it was mostly just farmland and crooked, hayseed public officials on the outskirts of city limits . . . Now there's less farm land.
Anyhoo . . . Fair use for the purposes of public education and discussion, here's what the tolls looked like back in the day and why there's that huge empty space on the KC side of the bridge where
alternative taxation DUI checkpoints are now staged.
You decide . . .
