KC Area ‘Beltway’ Enters 3rd Decade or “A Tale of Two States”

I drive I-435 on the Kansas side nearly everyday. And I remember before it was completed and you couldn’t drive completely around the 81-mile circuit. I’m thankful my home state took the long view instead of being shortsighted for future generations.
