KDOT Consult Meetings Coming to Liberal

Joe Denoyer - November 15, 2019 10:35 am

A series of regional meetings in 2019 are giving Kansans the opportunity to help shape the future of transportation in Kansas.

These Local Consult meetings will inform the state’s next Long Range Transportation Plan, the planning document that will guide investments from 2020 to 2045. That document will shape the state’s next transportation program, known as Forward.

The first round of Local Consult meetings took place in eight communities around the state. These meetings gave Kansans the opportunity to discuss new and existing transportation projects. Participants also took part in a scenario planning exercise to thoughtfully consider transportation needs in Kansas communities in the future – needs that shape conversations and priorities beginning today.

Beginning in Fall 2018, the Joint Legislative Transportation Vision Task Force started the work of compiling a list of transportation projects across the state. KDOT shared those lists with participants at the first round of Local Consult meetings. The regional project information prepared for the Local Consult meetings, as well as summaries of each meeting, are listed below.

The second round of Local Consult meetings will include discussions about the transportation assets in each region of the state, and work with stakeholders to identify regional priorities. These meetings are open to the public.

Please contact Mike Moriarty, KDOT Chief of Transportation Planning, 785-296-8864 or [email protected] with questions about the meetings or the process.
