Let us know at checkout and we'll be sure to send your lucky loved one a personalized gift card describing the subscription and letting them know when to expect their first delivery.  They'll delight in your gift of delicious, award-winning cheeses all year long! And you'll know your gift dollars are supporting humane animal agriculture and the preservation of traditional cheese making arts.

Buck O'Neil (Broadway) Bridge Reopens after Rehab Project

The Missouri Department of Transportation reopened the Buck O'Neil (Highway 169 over the Missouri River) Bridge after a rehabilitation project.

Crews closed all southbound traffic of the aging structure back in mid-May in order to repair cables, railings, the medians and the expansion joints on the structure. The Buck O'Neil Bridge is more than 60 years old and sees on average of about 40,000 vehicles each day.

The repair project cost an estimated $7 million and was a cost-sharing agreement with the City of Kansas City, MO. Currently; an environmental study is being conducted on the bridge. The study will be used to help determine the feasibility of a new bridge.
MoDOT would like to thank the citizens of Kansas City and all of its partners for their patience.

unnamed.jpg


Park Hill and Platte County R-3 students participated in National Manufacturing Day activities. Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufactures and takes place the first Friday in October. MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufactures an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is. Approximately 140 students had the opportunity to tour 5 local advance manufacturing companies: Multivac, Haldex, Martinrea, US Farathane and Marlen International.


Students had the opportunity to tour the facility floors and see equipment being manufactured first hand. They visited the different departments to learn about career opportunities available in the industry and education required for different positions. All five company tours were a success and the companies reported they enjoyed hosting the students and look forward to future opportunities to engage with education partners.
