TitleBridge Carries Pedestrians To Kansas City's Beginnings
AbstractStory on the recently completed Town of Kansas Bridge located near of the intersection of 2nd and Main Streets in the River Market area. The bridge is 635 feet long and reaches to a three-story overlook above the Missouri River. It is seen as a link in the planned Riverfront Heritage Trail. The bridge was designed by Tom Nelson of Berkebile Nelson Immenschuh McDowell Architects and the firm of Taliaferro and Brown was the prime contractor on the project.
NotesPlanning for the $4.1 million bridge began in the mid-1990s with Missouri's move into riverboat gambling. It was to be one element in a River Market project that would have included a gambling boat.
