Troost Bridge Project Underway
Kansas City, Mo. – Today marked the groundbreaking for the $13.5 million Troost Bridge project. The Troost Avenue bridge will be replaced. There will be streetscape and intersection improvements. Crews will also upgrade a stretch of the storm and sanitary sewer system.
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver says despite years of delays, with help from federal stimulus funds, the project is now moving forward.
"This is not something that is futuristic. This is not something that we hope will happen. This is something that is happening right now," Cleaver says. "And we've got people going to work today."
Construction is scheduled for completion in fall 2012.
UPDATE: The demolition and replacement of the Troost Bridge at Brush Creek was scheduled to begin in late June, 2010. It's been delayed and will now begin on September 1, 2010.
