Kaw River Bridge project expected to begin construction in 2021

A review of the Rock Island Bridge Project website will show that plans are in full swing to be open in spring 2022. They have secured multiple letters of intent from local KC area businesses to operate restaurants inside the space. The overall plan has some great ideas that will benefit both sides of the river.

The space is planning to house 4 restaurants, a bar and two event spaces. There is even an idea of adding a zip line from the Hy-Vee arena to the bridge or possibly a zip line over the Kaw. We will keep you up to date as plans are announced. You can read up on all of the plans and timeline here.
