A cross at mile marker 118 on the Kansas Turnpike marks the area where 21-year-old Zachary Clark of Keller, Texas, died when his car was swept into floodwaters in early July. The Kansas Turnpike Authority plans to expand drainage on a 2-mile stretch of the highway near Emporia where flooding has killed seven people since 2003. The design that will be used meets only the minimum standard, and it will give less protection than the standard used in some surrounding states.
