Marking the realization of a vital component in the revitalization concept developed by Port KC and the city of Kansas City, Missouri, this is the original birthplace of the city on the banks of the Missouri River.

This 650-foot long bridge, constructed in 2004, provides a bicycle and pedestrian link between the north end of Main Street and the original birthplace of the city on the banks of the Missouri River. Spanning the Town of Kansas archaeological site, two railroads and the Missouri River floodwall, the bridge serves as a critical connection between the surrounding community and the many amenities along the river.

The northern terminus of the bridge is located within the footprint of the old Municipal Wharf. In 2009, the existing structure underwent streetscaping enhancements to increase the ease of use for patrons.
