KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There was something new featured during November’s First Friday.

The Crossroads District has new and improved sidewalks, which are wider and are ADA accessible. There are new traffic signals to help move cars and trucks through the area.

LED street lights also have been added to help people feel safer.

The improvements are just part the latest project to be completed in downtown Kansas City.

The 20th Street Streetscape project looks nice, but city leaders - who celebrated the completion Friday, hope the $3.8 million project will pay off with more downtown visitors.
