Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has selected 30 projects for funding through its City Connecting Link Improvement Program (CCLIP). The program funds projects that improve state highways that extend through cities.

Through the program, cities contribute up to 25 percent of the project cost based on population, with those under 2,500 in population not being required to provide a match.

Projects are categorized as 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,” KDOT reports. “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.”

Twenty-seven cities will receive a combined total of approximately $15 million in funding under the CCLIP. This total includes $7.25 million in state fiscal year 2019 and $7.75 million in state fiscal year 2020.
