Two Kansas Department of Transportation construction projects won national awards at the 28th annual American Concrete Pavement conference on Nov. 30 in San Diego, Calif.

The South Lawrence Trafficway (SLT) was a gold winner in the Divided Highways (Rural) category. The 6-mi., $183 million SLT project in Douglas County opened to traffic in November 2016. It completed the loop around Lawrence connecting K-10 and the KTA.

The U.S. 56 (Ensign and Montezuma) reconstruction was a gold winner in the State Roads category. The U.S. 56 project in Gray County was a full depth reconstruction, including about 1 mi. of roadway in the cities of Ensign and Montezuma. The work also included storm sewer improvements.

The SLT also received a Sustainable Practices Recognition award. The award highlights the efforts to protect plants and animals in the Baker Wetlands while constructing a long-lasting highway.

The ACPA awards program highlights high-quality concrete pavement projects and serves to share information about challenging/successful projects.
