This is a Kansas City icon that was built in the 1950’s to carry Highway 169 right into downtown past the Charles B. Wheeler Airport. It is one of the few bridges spanning the gap between North Kansas City and Downtown, and can be a nightmare for morning commuters, but with the addition of Bond Bridge on I-35 it should be aliveated a little. When I look at this bridge I see a thousand mid-western communities, and basically the icon for 1950’s infrastructure in America. All that being said there is something exciting about the way the bridge glows against a waning twilight sky just falling into its daily slumber. Enjoy!
