U.S. 54, the most traveled road through tornado-ravaged Greensburg, will be moved about three blocks north of where it is now, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced today.

The road will be located between the current highwayand railroad tracks about three blocks to the north.

It will include a split-diamond interchange for access into the community.

KDOT reported that the option was chosen by community leaders because "it provided the most desirable mix of visibility, access, and economic development opportunities."

KDOT will work with Greensburg officials to start talks with each property owner about acquiring some or all of their property.
