On Thursday, June 27th, Governor Laura Kelly and Transportation Secretary Calvin Reed announced that $8.6 million will be awarded to 14 transportation construction projects. This will be done through the Kansas Department of Transportation’s (KDOT) Cost Share Program for spring 2024.

More than $260 million has been invested to support 179 projects in the program since it first began in fall 2019. “These new Cost Share projects will repair and modernize transportation infrastructure in communities across Kansas,” Governor Laura Kelly said.

The program has combined more than $146 million in state funding with $116 in matching local funds. “Kansans understand the value of partnerships. The Cost Share Program provides the opportunity for partnership between KDOT and communities to solve local transportation issues through shared investment,” KDOT Secretary Calvin Reed said.

Cloud County’s Noble Road preservation project is one of the 14 transportation construction projects according to Thursday’s announcement.
