Kansas City Seyz Save Buck O'Neil Bridge

The new designs have proven exceptionally underwhelming and without much merit, artistry or public interest for city that prides itself on one of the greatest American skylines.

Accordingly . . .

"Kansas City-based Hoet Landscape Architecture last month sought to reimagine the current Buck O'Neil Bridge as a public park following its planned removal."

Kansas City may be able to preserve existing Buck O'Neil Bridge - Kansas City Business Journal

Three weeks ago, the Kansas City area got its first glimpse of the Buck O'Neil Bridge's planned new design after a $220 million replacement effort is completed in 2024. Not all community members were fans of what they saw from the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Save it and rename it Satchel Paige Bridge. He's Kansas Citys Black national baseball hero.

Nobody is willing to pay for the Business Journal to read their biased articles. They are quickly going the way of The Falling Star.

It's a bridge . . . who gives a damn what it looks like?

Maybe KC should first focus of murders, potholes, flooding . . . etc. etc. etc

The new design is smooth, flowing and modern. Give a nice geographical name to it like say Broadway Bridge and the Kansas City everything upto date status gets updated.

gaawd fckn dipshits. You want to make a landscaped bridge, turn the one over by kemper arena into the park (does not need restaurants on it), it actually leads or could easily lead somewhere for pedestrians bike to go.

The picture is hilarious. The park space on the bridge will be full of crackheads, used condoms, bodies, and trash in three months.

Why do they call the Broadway Bridge the Buck O'Neil Bridge. Who was Buck O'Neil?

Oh hogwash. We dont need to spend hundreds of millions for him. How about George Brett? He did more for baseball than just be white.

if you want a nice walk with river views, get cooperation from the railroads to their service access roads along the rivers, or just commandeer it yourself and go for a ride.
