Kansas highway projects to be announced

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas residents will soon learn which major transportation projects the state plans to begin in the next two years.

Officials of the Kansas Department of Transportation scheduled a news conference Wednesday afternoon in Topeka to announce the list of projects.

They're part of a 10-year program for improving highways, airports and public transportation throughout Kansas. The projects are being financed through bonds and an increase in the state sales tax.

The projects will be started in 2013 and 2014.
