Liberal Selected for Funding Under KDOT’s Geometric Improvement Program
08/28/2012

 

           Projects that will improve intersections and address road deficiencies in 18 cities throughout Kansas will receive fiscal year 2015 funding under the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Geometric Improvement Program.

            The state will provide $10.9 million for the projects, which will be built at an estimated cost of $15.4 million. The cities will provide matching funds to cover the remainder of the costs. The percent of state funding is based on the size of the city and ranges from 75 percent for the largest cities to 100 percent for the smallest.

            KDOT received 40 applications requesting $27 million in funding (for projects totaling $37 million).

            Roads selected for Geometric Improvement funding are part of the state highway system but located within city limits.

            Communities selected for the program and the state contribution include:

            Augusta, $600,000; Baxter Springs, $303,100; Beloit, $750,000; Coffeyville, $373,900; Dighton, $115,000; Downs, $698,100; Great Bend, $583,200; Hillsboro, $627,400; Horton, $150,200;
