KSDOT schedules hundreds of highway projects 

TOPEKA, KAN. — The Kansas Department of Transportation (KSDOT) scheduled more than 430 projects for the 2013-14 fiscal years to improve 1,600 miles of highway and replace or repair 209 bridges and interchanges. The 2013 state fiscal year began July 1 and many of the projects are under way. The estimated cost of the projects is $1.1 billion.

“The majority of these projects are considered preservation work and will protect the investment Kansans have made in their transportation system,” said Kansas Transportation Secretary Mike King. “But there are also some big projects that will expand capacity on some of the state’s busiest corridors and spur economic development.”

Some of the biggest projects that will get under way in the next two years include the reconstruction and expansion to six lanes of U.S. 54/Kellogg Avenue in Wichita, the South Lawrence Trafficway and the Johnson County Gateway interchange project at the K-10/I-435/I-35 junction. Those projects were announced last year by Gov. Sam Brownback.

All of the projects are part of the 2010 T-WORKS transportation program. The projects can be viewed by county or route on the T-WORKS website at
