(DODGE CITY, Kan.)
State transportation officials face less money, and they are askign communities where it should be sued.
The Kansas Department of Transportation came to Dodge City Wednesday. Representatives from KDOT talked with city and county leaders about current and future road work. In order to have projects ready to go when funding becomes available, KDOT must complete preliminary studies, purchases and design work.
"It's really a follow-up to what we have promised in the past. Every couple of years we will come out and host what we call 'local consulatation' and, again, gather our local owners, our state partners and talk about transportation issues and transportation needs within the region," said KDOT spokesperson Jerry Younger.
There are 14 candidate proejcts in southwest Kansas. Eight projects have already been selected for construction. The work is part of KDOT's T-Works 10-year program. Click here to visit the T-Works website and see all the projects underway and in planning.
