KDOT Seeks Public Input from Southwest Kansans

KDOT seeks input on US-54 expansion

The Kansas Department of Transportation will host public information

open house events on October 2 and 3 to provide concerned citizens an

opportunity to weigh in on the planned expansion of US-54 to a four-lane divided

highway through a portion of Seward County. The Kansas DOT has funding for

construction of approximately 9.5 miles of four-lane highway, plus design work

to the Seward/Meade county line.

Representatives of KDOT and the engineering consultant team will be

on hand to answer questions and discuss issues related to this highway

improvement. There will be no formal presentations, but visitors will be able to

share comments and concerns with the design team. Each open house will run from

5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and you can come and go any time. The two events will be held

at the following locations:

Liberal Tuesday, October 2 Rock Island Depot, 4 Rock

Island Road, Liberal

Kismet Wednesday, October 3 Southwestern Heights High

School, US-54

The US-54 expansion project is part of the T-WORKS transportation program. To

If you have questions on this project or the upcoming public meetings, you can
