The Kansas Department of Transportation has awarded nearly $18 million to 35 projects around the state through its transportation enhancement program.
Transportation Enhancement is a federally funded program that provides cities, counties, and other groups with funding for transportation projects like bike paths, pedestrian traffic, bicycle safety education, historic restoration, scenic highway programs, and the conversion of abandoned railroad lines into trails, among other things.
