The record: A searchable map, by county, of projects funded by the Transportation Works for Kansas (T-WORKS) program. The Kansas Legislature in 2010 approved spending $8 billion over 10 years on the program. Under the program, at least $8 million is supposed to be invested in each of Kansas’ 105 counties.

Why you’d want it: To keep track of projects and learn more about what improvements are being made in each county.

Where you get it: Go to http://kdotapp.ksdot.org/TWorks/Investments for the searchable map. Go to http://kdotapp.ksdot.org/TWorks/8M-Promise to see how the Kansas Department of Transportation is doing on the so-called $8 Million Promise.

How much does it cost: The information is free.
