KC Streetcar to Break Ground on New Riverfront Extension

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The KC Streetcar Authority will break ground on the riverfront extension route.

Streetcar Authority Executive Director Tom Gerends said this extension should take two years to construct, being completed ideally in time for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The track is 0.7 miles starting in the river market area and ending along the Berkley Riverfront Park. Construction is expected to start immediately.

“You’re gonna see some construction on the riverfront some utility we’re doing some work. Here on the edge of the park, we’re getting ready for the trackway construction and then later this year in the fall, you’re gonna see work on the bridge, where we’re going to have to close the bridge for a period of time,” said Tom Gerends.
