Semi Truck and Trailer Repair Services – Hwy 70 – Exit 28
“Breaker, breaker, any of you east bounders got your ears on?” Hop in; we’re taking a ride, Missouri style. Along the way we’ll make sure you know where to go for all your semi truck and trailer repair services. For our adventure, we’re headed eastbound on Interstate 70, from the Kansas/Missouri State Line in downtown Kansas City, with our destination being Columbia, Missouri. The I-70 corridor, you might say. From Jayhawk country to Tiger country. We’re sure to see it all – urban, suburban and rural settings. Starting at the Missouri River dividing Kansas and Missouri, average Big Truck drivers like us make the trip in about two hours, so buckle up and let’s drive.
Making our way through the downtown area calls to mind a long history of economic booms, decades of blight, and a 21st century renaissance. Kansas City’s beginnings were necessary to our nation’s economy due to its centralized location and the importance of a major river. The region got its start from Lewis and Clark’s Corp of Discovery and the beginning of fur trade to the Santa Fe, Oregon and California trails and the hub of railroad and airway transportation.
As is still the case in modern times, goods in the early 19th century needed to be transported, and river transportation was logistically essential. Over a hundred years later, the city was a major hub at the height of rail service. Today, rail and airline services still move goods across our country, but none of us need reminding that the trucking industry is of extreme value.
