(WICHITA, Kan.) — What do you want to see on Kansas roads in the future? That's what the Kansas Department of Transportation wants to know.
KDOT is holding a series of workshops focusing on the new $8.2 billion transportation plan approved by the legislature this year. The first workshop was Monday afternoon in Wichita.
The state has not yet selected projects for the program, and is looking for community input to determine what residents would like to see. Officials say the workshops are just a start, with more meetings planned this fall.
"We very much want to hear from people," said Julie Lorenz, Director of Public Affairs for KDOT. "We are thrilled to have additional funds, but the money simply won't meet every need that's out on our highway system and we need to hear from communities so we make the best decisions possible."
