Governor Kelly Announces More Than $11M Awarded for Transportation Projects

Joe Denoyer - June 6, 2023 1:40 pm

GARDNER – Governor Laura Kelly and Acting Secretary of Transportation Calvin Reed announced this afternoon that more than $11 million will be awarded to 14 transportation construction projects across Kansas. These investments are made possible through the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Cost Share Program for spring 2023.

The Cost Share Program is designed to help rural and urban areas advance transportation projects to improve safety, support job retention and growth, relieve congestion, and improve access and mobility. The program was created as part of the Kelly administration’s 10-year, bipartisan Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program, or IKE.

With today’s announcement, Cost Share has resulted in the investment of more than $125 million in state funding since the program was founded in the fall of 2019. Almost 150 projects have been awarded across the state, with nearly an additional $100 million in matching local funds.

Spring 2023 Cost Share recipients include:
Meade County – Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) overlay on routes near Fowler
