Jackson County invites you to join us for the signing of a historic document with Union Pacific Railroad, as the county -- in partnership with the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority -- officially acquires the 17.7-mile Rock Island Corridor.
This trailblazing investment in the county's future includes the creation of a new bicycle and hiking trail and the development of multi-modal transportation.
Jackson County Legislators approved issuing bonds to purchase the corridor during their April 4 meeting.
