The name of Kansas City’s Trolley Trail – a six-mile path now populated by walkers, runners, and bikers – offers some indication of its original purpose. The route is one of the last pieces of the city’s original streetcar system.
J.P. Morgan of Olathe suspects most people haven’t noticed the bridge that goes nowhere in Kansas City, even though thousands of drivers pass it on their daily commutes.
It’s in the Benton Curve on Interstate 70, between Benton Boulevard and Indiana Avenue.
"I’ve seen it for years and I was always wondering,” Morgan said. “I’ve tried to look it up online but found no information on it whatsoever."
