Bridge plans affect Kansas City Downtown Airport

Plans to replace Kansas City’s Paseo Bridge with a new bridge that’s 150 feet taller could force major operational changes at Charles B. Wheeler/Kansas City Downtown Airport. As proposed, the New Paseo Bridge would force all VFR traffic pattern operations to move to the west side of the airport, potentially limiting flight training operations, causing peak-time congestion, forcing extended downwind pattern legs, and creating noise problems for surrounding residential communities.
