New Report Evaluates Funding Needs And Condition Of Kansas’ Roads And Bridges

A new report that evaluates the current condition, use and funding of Kansas’ highway transportation system will be released at a news conference in Topeka at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, September 28.
Kansas faces a significant transportation funding gap over the next 10 years, which will not only impede efforts to improve roads and other infrastructure, but will also limit the potential for economic recovery.

The report, “Moving Kansas Forward: The Condition and Funding of Kansas’ Roads, Highways & Bridges,” details unfunded highway projects that improve safety and infrastructure including the I-35/I-435/K- 10 interchange in Kansas City and the I-235/Kellogg/Central interchange complex in Wichita.
