KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Transit leaders at the KC Streetcar Partnership are moving forward with plans to extend streetcar service to the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus.

The KC Street Authority, in coordination with the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and the City of Kansas, Mo., has issued a notice to proceed to begin planning work on the streetcar southern extension project.

HDR Engineering will provide the planning and engineering services along with a consortium of other transit and engineering experts. The streetcar and transportation authorities will split the planning costs.

The planning and engineering work, which is expected to cost about $1 million, is estimated to take nine months to complete.

The southern extension will bring light rail service south from downtown Kansas City and Union Station toward the main campus area of the University of Missouri-Kansas City in the vicinity of 51st and Brookside Boulevard.
