KDOT Unveils $1.1B in Transportation Projects

KSCB News - November 14, 2012 3:38 pm

Kansas transportation officials have released a list of more than 430 construction projects totaling $1.1 billion to be carried out in the next two budget years, including several that are already under way.

The list released Wednesday includes some major projects that were previously announced by the Kansas Department of Transportation.

They include completion of the South Lawrence Trafficway in Douglas County; expansion of U.S. 54/Kellogg Avenue in Wichita; and improvements to the junction of Kansas 10 and Interstates 35 and 435 in Johnson County.

The projects are part of the state’s 10-year program for improving highways, airports and public transportation. KDOT says the projects cover the fiscal year that began July 1 and continue through June 30, 2015.

The projects can be viewed by county or route on the T-WORKS website, or viewed in its entirety on the KDOT website at under "Recent News Releases."
