A week ago this closed section of the Indian Creek Trail, at Antioch in Overland Park, was still a mess. I was happily surprised to see that they've been putting some serious effort into getting it open. Here are shots from this morning's commute with the obligatory shot of my bike (sorry Noah, I don't think I hit any of your ten points).
This section, which runs next to I-435, was closed on July 5, 2005.
If someone were to ride down the closed section of the trail on the other side they would see something like these (what I'm calling) "artist conceptions" of what the new section running under I-435 looks like.
They've even added lights and widened that part of the path.
I am eagerly awaiting the re-opening.
