Secretary of Transportation Mike King from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will be in Liberal on Monday at 9 a.m. at the Rock Island Depot for a town hall forum on upcoming projects for Highway 54 and Highway 83.
State Representative Reid Petty will introduce King at the forum. Petty said he is pleased with the job King is doing so far and that this is a great opportunity for citizens to give input.
"Secretary King is aware of the needs for four lanes on Highway 54 and he has worked hard to help expand our area's upcoming project. I hope there will be a great turnout on Monday morning to give him and his staff input about future projects and to show just how important four lanes is to our area," Petty said.
King will be joined by Deputy Secretary of KDOT Jerry Younger and Legislation Liason Lindsey Douglas.
The town hall will go from 9-10 a.m. on Monday at the Rock Island Depot and will be sponsored by the Liberal Chamber of Commerce and AT&T.
