Once again the streetcar is DECIMATING biz and transit along a major Kansas City thoroughfare . . . And we're forced to listen to excuses from a gentrification scheme targeting the working poor.
Accordingly . . .
Here's a bit of hope amid the holidays . . .
According to KC Water, contractors have replaced around 2,500 feet of sewer and 21,000 feet of water mains.
Jeff Martin, the department's chief engineering officer, said the project is running a little ahead of schedule thanks in part to mild weather in the fall and winter.
"They're doing a really good job," he said. "We appreciate everyone's patience."
The 3.5-mile streetcar extension will likely take four to five years to complete. Martin said the preliminary utility work happening under the surface will improve services through Midtown, yielding better service and more accessibility to fire hydrants.
Translation . . .
Unless you're getting a tax break from Kansas City . . . It might be time to reroute biz as the hostile TDD doesn't care about any operation that doesn't provide super trendy social media support.
