(DODGE CITY, Kan.) — The Kansas Department of Transportation wants input from two communities on a new highway project.
As part of the state's new 10-year highway plan, called T-Works, KDOT wants to expand U.S. 50 to four lanes between Dodge City and Cimarron.
While the proposal has been made, before construction begins the state wants more input. The next step will be to hold public meetings in both towns. Officials say they want to hear concerns, ideas and questions.
"For several, several years we've always wanted to include the public and their comments because this is something we have learned over the years is very important," said Dale Luedke, area engineer for KDOT.
