The Imagine Downtown KC plan – set to be released this summer – will serve as the primary vision-setting and policy blueprint to lead the ongoing revitalization of Downtown Kansas City. The future of the North and South Loops are envisioned in the strategic plan as “Loop Reimagination,” one of seven catalytic projects designed to transform the future of Downtown KC.
Reimagining the I-169/ I-70/I-670 corridors (i.e., the North and South loops and the related vision for Highway 9,) is considered one of the most important projects to reimagine and reposition Downtown economically for the next 50 years.

Both projects unlock land for development by mitigating, condensing, lidding, or removing the interstates.
