The Kansas City: Connecting Our Riverfront for Everyone (KC CORE) project will extend the mobility and economic development benefits of the Kansas City Streetcar to a long dormant area near downtown – catalyzing economic development and job creation. But the project is much more than a streetcar extension. KC•CORE includes an extension of multi-modal amenities to the Kansas City Riverfront (Berkley Riverfront) with the construction of a new multi-use trail alongside the expanded streetcar alignment that will improve connectivity and safety. This $32 million innovative public-private partnership is a key part of the project’s strong funding strategy. Lastly, the KC•CORE project builds upon and enhances previous USDOT TIGER investments made in the Kansas City region.
