ONE YEAR LATER: KANSAS CITY HATES WESTPORT STOPLIGHT SCHEME!!!
Kansas City gave it a year and the schemes of urban planner caused a few fender benders and almost killed about a half a dozen people.
And so . . .
THE WESTPORT STOPLIGHT EXPERIMENT IS ONE OF THE WORST TRAFFIC SCHEMES KANSAS CITY HAS SEEN IN YEAR!!! IT'S TIME TO TURN THE LIGHTS BACK TO NORMAL!!!
To be fair, we're really surprised nobody died because of the confusion caused.
Here's a quick look back at the effort that didn't really make this party district any safer . . .
"After a year-long evaluation period, the new alignment is expected to become a permanent feature with relocated curbs, new street trees, site furniture and enhanced paving. The added value is already evident, but once permanent, this improvement will make Westport a more sociable, safe and profitable place."
