11 Kansas cities will receive fiscal year 2016 funding for projects that will improve intersections and address road deficiencies, under the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Geometric Improvement program.
The state will provide $6.23 million for the Geometric Improvement projects, which will be built at an estimated cost of $7.7 million. The cities will provide matching funds to cover the remainder of the costs. The percent of state funding is based on the size of the city and ranges from 75 percent for the largest cities to 100 percent for the smallest.
Roads selected for Geometric Improvement funding are part of the state highway system but are located within city limits.
Junction City is one of the many Communities selected for the Geometric Improvement program and maximum state contribution, and will receive $268,000.
