When the Kansas Legislature passed the state transportation program, T-WORKS, in 2010, it required that at least $8 million be invested in every Kansas county. The $8 million could be made up of highway, rail and aviation projects. Currently, 93 out of the 105 counties have met that promise.
Of the remaining 12 counties, many have work currently scheduled that will get them to the $8 million mark. For example, $6.7 million of work has been completed in Rush County so far and another $1.4 million worth of work is currently scheduled to begin in the next few years.
