71/150 highway interchange ribbon cutting

Grandview, Kansas City and state officials gathered Monday, November 22 for a ribbon cutting celebration to mark the opening of the 71 Highway single-point urban interchange at 150 Highway. The project began in 2008 and cost $29.6 million to complete. "I want to thank Gail's Harley Davidson, Joe's Carpet, and everyone else for putting up with this for the past two years," said Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser. Grandview Board of Aldermen President Steve Dennis also spoke at the ceremony, saying he was "thrilled that this day has finally come" and he hoped the new interchange will spur more development in Grandview. State Representative Jason Holsman said the interchange will benefit both KC and Grandview. Other officials in attendance included KC Councilmembers John Sharp and Cathy Jolly, Grandview Alderman Joe Runions, and Grandview City Administrator Cory Smith. (Photo by Paul Thompson)
