The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has announced hundreds of transportation projects that will preserve, expand and modernize the Kansas highway system have been scheduled for the next two years. Per the press release:
The projects, which will be funded under T-WORKS, the transportation program passed by the 2010 Legislature, will improve 1,404 miles of highway and replace 93 bridges. The work will be done in the 2012-13 fiscal years, which began July 1. The estimated cost of the projects is $650 million.
Every year for the remainder of the 10-year T-WORKS program, KDOT will announce a two-year schedule of projects shortly after the July 1 start of the new
fiscal year. That differs from earlier, multi-year transportation programs when nearly all of the projects were announced up front.
“By announcing two-year schedules on an annual basis, we can ensure that communities have an idea of what is coming and have ample time to plan accordingly,” said Transportation Secretary Deb Miller.
The list of projects, some of which are already under contract, can be viewed in its entirety and broken down county-by-county on the T-WORKS website, http://kdotapp.ksdot.org/TWorks/. The website provides general information about the scheduled work and the means to track the progress of each project.
