Connex MetroCenter

A section of downtown Kansas City, Kansas will be getting a makeover soon. The southeast corner of 7th and Minnesota will be home to the new “Connex MetroCenter”.

Yellow cones along with barricades and Detour signs will become part of the downtown landscape for several months starting July 2012. The development team is doing everything possible to ensure the construction process goes smoothly and that those who work and visit downtown frequently are provided updates on the progress.

KCATA and Unified Government Transit secured federal TIGER funding in 2010 to improve the existing Minnesota/State Avenue transit corridor. The improvements will be made along the transit route that begins at the 10th & Main MetroCenter in downtown Kansas City, Mo., travels through Downtown Kansas City, Ks., and ends at Village West at 109th and Parallel Parkway in Wyandotte County before returning in the opposite direction. The route will serve activity centers and neighborhoods along State and Minnesota avenues. State Avenue Connex will be complete in 2013.

Please check here periodically for updates.
