Platte River Road Archway trying to find ways to stay open|

Despite more than a decade of financial failure and vastly reduced attendance,
former State Senator and Chairman of the Great Platte River Road Archway Foundation Joel Johnson expects the Kearney Archway to survive. Johnson defended the organization's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing week, and hopes a bankruptcy judge rules in their favor. The foundation is also counting on more visitors that will be delivered by the long awaited Cherry Avenue Bypass which is scheduled to be open in a couple of months for the summer travel season. But, Johnson says admissions won’t do it all. With those two things in place Johnson said the foundation could go about raising the private donations he knows the archway will need to supplement admissions.
