Kansas City's Northeast Newscast
Northeast Newscast Episode 7 w/ Mid-America Regional Council's Ron Achelpohl
Apr 18, 2017
With the Buck O'Neil Bridge featured prominently in the news of late, MARC Director of Transportation and Environment Ron Achelpohl joins the Northeast Newscast to discuss the organization's role in the ongoing debate over whether the bridge should be repaired or replaced. After a wide-ranging discussion about the Buck O'Neil Bridge, Achelpohl talks about MoDOT funding and how money can be raised for crucial infrastructure needs in Missouri, whether or not the wild Kansas City to St. Louis Hyperloop is more science fiction or reality, and MARC's future priorities in and around the Northeast area.
