  • The city of Independence plans to officially open the last part of the Little Blue Parkway next week.
    A ribbon is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday on the west side of the road between Missouri 78 and Bundschu Road.
    The parkway will now run up the east side of the city, from U.S. 40, over Interstate 70 and north through the valley of the Little Blue River to U.S. 24. It has been years in the making. Last year, the city opened the section from 39th Street to Bundschu, and now it will open the section from Bundschu to U.S. 24.
