COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM


Print this page

Transportation Works for Kansas (T-WORKS) is a comprehensive transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature.

T-WORKS is designed to create jobs, preserve highway infrastructure and provide multimodal economic development opportunities across the state. The third multi-year, state-tax-driven initiative that addresses infrastructure creation and maintenance since 1991, T-WORKS is set to expire in May 2020.

Various features of the program support different avenues of transportation:

  • A new highway project selection process that uses engineering data, local input and economic impact analysis to evaluate projects. Economic impact analysis helps ensure Kansans get a good return on their investments.
  • An expanded Economic Development Program, which will be more flexible and responsive (i.e. decisions made in 45 days or less) to help communities capitalize on emerging economic opportunities.
  • A regional transit approach to make services more efficient and expand coverage across the state.
  • Expanded access to air ambulance services thanks to a strategic selection process for aviation projects.
  • An expanded rail program that allows shippers and industrial parks to be eligible for program funds along with local governments.
  • Improved maintenance of Kansas highways to offer a performance level our residents and businesses have come to expect.
