Transportation Works for Kansas (T-WORKS), is a comprehensive transportation program passed by the Kansas Legislature.
T-WORKS is designed to create jobs, preserve highway infrastructure and provide multimodal economic development opportunities across the state. The third multi-year state-tax-driven initiative that addresses infrastructure creation and maintenance since 1991,
T-WORKS is set to expire in May 2020. Various features of the program support different avenues of transportation, such as:
A new highway project selection process that uses engineering data, local input and economic impact analysis to evaluate projects. Economic impact analysis helps ensure Kansans get a good return on their investments.
An expanded Economic Development Program, which will be more flexible and responsive (i.e. decisions made in 45 days or less) to help communities capitalize on emerging economic opportunities.
A regional transit approach to make services more efficient and expand coverage across the state.
Expanded access to air ambulance services thanks to a strategic selection process for aviation projects.
An expanded rail program that allows shippers and industrial parks to be eligible for program funds along with local governments.
Improved maintenance of Kansas highways, offer a performance level our residents and businesses have come to expect.
T-WORKS has completed over 4,270 projects with 1,148 projects are scheduled or currently underway.
2,590 projects that preserve, modernize and expand our highways more than 12,000 miles.
1,305 projects that address various needs of our local roads.
