Ding Ding! Lynchpin Ideas is onboard to help spread the news about KC Streetcar Main Street Extension

Lynchpin Ideas is soon to embark on a new adventure in our official role helping handle community engagement on the KC Streetcar Main Street Extension. Our firm will serve as a subcontractor to HDR Engineering, the firm leading the final design, and will team up with Parson + Associates to provide communications services as work progresses on the line.

As an original advocate of the KC Streetcar in its earliest days of inception, Laura Lynch says being selected as a member of the project team is both a personal and professional honor. “KC Streetcar is beyond a mode of transportation: It’s an immersive experience that transforms neighborhoods, one block at a time. I’ve been a believer since it was an idea shared with me by my friend, mentor, and former KCATA Board Member and Communications Chair Teri Rogers,” said Laura.

Laura’s passion for KC Streetcar even factored into the location of Lynchpin Ideas’ office, the historic Parkside Plaza building at 4550 Main Street, which literally gives Lynchpin Ideas a front row view of the planned extension. “We’re fortunate to be part of this amazing team, and incredibly excited to play a role in supporting KC Streetcar’s journey southward,” said Laura.

On Thursday, April 16, 2020, the Kansas City Council approved Design Professional and Construction Manager at Risk contracts, allowing the KC Streetcar Main Street Extension project to move forward with design and pre-construction activities later this year.
