WICHITA — Citizens will get a chance to voice their opinions tomorrow on a plan to add eight sets of passing lanes along U.S. 400 in six Kansas counties.
The Kansas Department of Transportation is hosting a public open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Beaumont Hotel, 11651 SE Main in Beaumont, to gather public comments on the construction of the lanes. The $30 million project is designed help address commercial traffic flow along U.S. 400 in Butler, Greenwood, Wilson, Montgomery, Labette and Cherokee counties.
KDOT staff will be on hand to answer citizens' questions. Maps and information on the cost of the project will also be available.
KDOT will brief public officials at 4 p.m.
The project is part of T-WORKS, a 10-year, $8 billion statewide transportation program approved by legislators in 2010.
