Paseo/Kit Bond Bridge - 10/18/09
Made by +++CoolValley+++
The Paseo Bridge was built in 1954 and was rehabilitated in 1984 and 2005. According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, the bridge handles 95,000 vehicles a day, making it the most used bridge in Kansas City. The Paseo Bridge serves as the main connection between Kansas City and the Northland (the area of Kansas City north of the Missouri River). At the time it was built, it was the longest self connected suspension bridge ever constructed worldwide. MoDOT is planning to replace the bridge with the Christopher S. Bond Bridge. Construction of the new cable-stayed bridge is scheduled to begin in April 2008 and be completed in 2011. The Paseo Bridge will be open during the initial construction. The Christopher S. Bond Bridge in Kansas City, Missouri (sometimes referred to as the New Paseo Bridge) is a cable-stayed bridge across the Missouri River that is scheduled to open in 2011 as a replacement to the Paseo Bridge. On November 14, 2007, MoDOT announced plans for a complete replacement of the Paseo Bridge. The new Christopher S. Bond Missouri River Bridge will be a dual-span cable-stayed bridge, anchored by a 260-foot (79 m) tall delta-shaped pylon. The pylon will rise 316 feet (96 m) above the Missouri River. In December 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration warned that the pylon might interfere with traffic at Kansas City Downtown Airport, a mile to the west. In August 2008, the FAA altered flight procedures at the airport to give planes more than 700 feet (210 m) of clearance above the pylon. The new bridge will be built just downstream of the existing roadway, which will allow the existing bridge to remain open to traffic during construction beginning in April 2008. The roadway capacity will be increased from forty to sixty feet through lanes, plus a northbound auxiliary lane and future southbound bicycle/pedestrian crossing. The contract completion date of the winning design-build proposal is June 1, 2011. The bridge is part of a $245 million project that will upgrade an approximately 2-mile (3.2 km) section of the I-29/I-35 corridor to six lanes. The bridge was designed by Bradley Touchstone of the DodStone Group of Tallahassee, Florida. The firm also designed the John James Audubon Bridge which will the be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America when it is completed.

Paseo Self Anchored Suspension Bridge & Cable-stayed Suspension Bridge Kansas City, Missouri Spans: Missouri River Completed: Self Anchored Suspension Bridge - 1953 Cable-stayed Suspension Bridge - 2010 Visited: Sunday, November 14, 2010 The cable-stayed bridge is a total replacement of the self anchored suspension bridge. The latter will eventually torn down. At the time of my visit in mid November, the northbound lanes had already been shifted onto the new cable-stayed bridge. The southbound lanes are scheduled to follow by the end of 2010. The older bridge only carried 4 lanes with two in each direction. The newer bridge has three lanes for each direction and can be striped for four in each direction. I arrived at the bridge with the skies gray and gloomy, but I could tell that it would only be that way for a little while yet. Well, it turned into nearly an hour until the clouds moved out for the Sun to show. I let the two self photos of myself holding the Lego counters be the examples of the contrast between shooting with cloud cover and in sunshine. 14th & 15th bridge visits during an 80 hour door back to door bridging trip to the heartland. Fifth & sixth bridge visits on the second full day. Fly out Friday / back on Monday leaving Saturday and Sunday to visit bridges in KS, NE, NE / IA, & MO. A total of 16 bridges visited with two being repeat visits. Not a bad haul considering the distances in between and the short amount of daylight in mid November being a bit over a month to the Winter Solstice. Ended up putting just 17 miles shy of 1,000 on the rental.

The Paseo Bridge (foreground) is a suspension bridge over the Missouri River in Kansas City, Missouri. Before being replaced by the Christopher S. Bond Bridge (background), it carried Interstates 29 and 35 and U.S. Route 71 over the river. It was built in 1954 and was rehabilitated in 1984 and 2005. According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, the bridge handled 95,000 vehicles a day before its retirement, making it the most used bridge in Kansas City. The Paseo Bridge also served as the main connection between Kansas City and the Northland (the area of Kansas City north of the Missouri River). At the time it was built, it was the longest self connected suspension bridge ever constructed worldwide. MoDOT replaced the bridge in 2010 with the Christopher S. Bond Bridge. Construction of the new cable-stayed bridge began in April 2008 and was completed several months ahead of schedule. The Paseo Bridge was open to traffic during the construction, gradually shifting the flow onto the new Bond Bridge until all lanes of the new bridge were open. Vehicle traffic across the Paseo Bridge ceased on November 19, 2010, and demolition work on the bridge began shortly thereafter. (Wikipedia)

KC's new bridge making the Paseo Bridge look small. The Paseo was built in 1954. It was closed for 6 months a couple years back when a joint failed making the decking 6 inches higher or lower from the adjoining road surface. Note the workers on the very top probably vibrating a freash load of concrete. The huge crane is floating on a barge pretty far below what you can see here. www.kcicon.org/index.html There is a webcam link there too.

Kansas City This set contains photos that I have taken while traveling to and from the Santa Fe Railway Historical and Modeling Society Mini Meet held annually in Kansas City. The event is typically in November so many of the slides were dreary and dark. Those that aren't invariably have the best sun on the trailing part of the train. I decided to celebrate these realities as part of the experience. Most of these photos are scanned Kodachrome 64 slides.

The old making way for the new. The Paseo bridge is being replaced with the Bond bridge. The Paseo bridge has been around for about 50 years or so. The Bond bridge is scheduled for a 2011 opening. These bridges carry north and southbound federal highways I-29 and I-35 across the Missouri river at Kansas City, Missouri.

The Paseo Bridge, Kansas City, Missouri This suspension bridge is self-anchored, unlike most others of its type. Instead of heavy anchorages for the cables at either end, the weight borne by the cables is transferred to the deck, hence the heavy girders to resist the resulting compressive forces placed upon it.

Out with the old and in with the new. The Bond Bridge is currently being built to replace the Paseo Bridge which carries traffic for the north/south I-29/I-35 highway corridor over the Missouri River at Kansas City, Missouri. All of these shots were taken with a point and shoot camera.

The new Kit Bond Bridge carries Interstate highways 35 and 29 over the Missouri River between downtown Kansas City and North Kansas City. It replaces the Paseo Bridge which sits directly beside the new structure, making it mandatory to demolish the older brige a piece at a time.

This is a brand new bridge in Kansas City, MO (which took place of the old Paseo Bridge). I took the photo while driving ~55 mph & holding the camera out of the driver's window. I figured it was much safer then running out in the middle of traffic. Nikon D5000 18-55mm

I noticed this interesting occurrence while driving by the Missouri river. Ice has formed up river in sheets but as it floats and turns down the river it shapes into some nice circles of ice. Sorry the pic isn’t as clear as it could be, but the river was flowing fast!
