TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Department of Transportation says
18 cities will share almost $11 million in funds for future highway

some cases, communities will have to provide matching funds. The
projects add lanes or make other improvements to highways as they
pass through the cities.
Manhattan received the most money, $900,000, to help upgrade the
Kansas 18 and K-113 interchange.
Independence is receiving $800,000 for improvements on U.S. 75,
while Liberal is getting the same amount to help upgrade U.S. 54.
Winfield also is receiving $800,000 for improvements to U.S. 77.
Other communities receiving funds are Augusta, Baxter Springs,
Beloit, Coffeyville, Dighton, Downs, Great Bend, Hillsboro, Horton,
Jewell, Leavenworth, Ness City, Norton and Stockton.
