Twenty-seven Kansas citites will receive $13.7M for road projects.

Twenty-seven projects that will improve intersections and roads in Kansas cities have been selected for funding through the Kansas Department of Transportation's City Connecting Link Improvement Program (CCLIP), which funds improvements to state highways that extend through cities.

The cities will receive a combined total of approximately $13.7 million in funding under the CCLIP for these 27 projects. This total includes $6.6 million in state fiscal year 2020 and $7.1 million in state fiscal year 2021.

Under the CCLIP, a city contributes up to 25 percent of the project cost based on its population. Cities under 2,500 in population aren't required to provide a match. Projects in this program may fall into one of three different categories including Surface Preservation (SP), Pavement Restoration (PR) or Geometric Improvement (GI).

SP projects involve maintenance work such as resurfacing and are funded up to $300,000 per project. PR projects typically involve full-depth pavement replacement without changes to the overall geometric characteristics and may also address drainage issues. GI projects address geometric issues such as adding turn lanes, improving intersections or modifying the lane configuration to address capacity. The PR and GI categories are funded up to $1 million per project.

For the state fiscal year 2020, the city, category and amount awarded include:

  • St. Marys Surface Preservation $300,000
  • Alma Surface Preservation $230,000
  • Atchison Surface Preservation $300,000
