Bike Lanes Needed in Kansas City East-West Corridor

Kansas City area riders, do you want more bike lanes in Downtown Kansas City? Here is your chance to make your voice heard on adding bike lanes to a critical Downtown east to west corridor. BikeWalkKC is asking for your help to make it clear to the city that bike lanes should be included on 11th and 12th streets. BikeWalkKC is asking area cyclists and residents to contact the KCATA and let them know that you want bike lanes included on this imnportant east-west route in the city.

“The KC Area Transportation Authority is consolidating Downtown bus routes on Grand Boulevard and 11th/12th Streets. BikeWalkKC has worked with the KCATA and City of KCMO to include bike lanes on Grand, but we need your help to get bike lanes on 11th and 12th. The 11th/12th corridor is the only Downtown east/west bike route on the city’s bike master plan. It is a very important connection for people on bikes, and we need your help to show the KCATA and City Hall that there is strong public support for bike lanes.”
