In spite of objections, KC Council approves streetcar construction management contract

After a heated discussion, the council voted 8-5 to award the contract to St. Joseph-based Herzog Contracting Corp. and California-based Stacy and Witbeck. Supporters hope that by summer 2015, the streetcars will be running on a 2-mile route from River Market to near Union Station, primarily on Main Street.
