The Cost Share Program, created during the most recent legislative session, is designed to rely on funding from various levels of government and private sector groups. KDOT announced Nov. 5 that the 22 projects represent nearly $74 million in state, local, federal and private investment.
“These projects demonstrate communities’ commitments to improve the quality of life for their citizens and to do so in a practical manner,” Gov. Laura Kelly said. “This program also demonstrates the great things that happen when communities and the state work together.”
Officials selected projects in all six of Kansas’ transportation districts. Projects encompass a range of efforts to improve safety and mobility, relieve congestion, and support job retention.
Selected projects include intersection improvements at a juncture in Lansing, pavement patching along multiple roads in Allen County, highway bridge improvements in three neighboring southwestern Kansas counties and runway repairs at the Salina Regional Airport.
