Highway meeting will be in Hays Tuesday


The Kansas Department of Transportation has scheduled eight regional meetings to update Kansans on T-WORKS projects in their areas and gather input from the public on how state transportation dollars are being invested.

One of the stops will be in Hays, with a public input session beginning at 9 a.m. at the Kansas Highway Patrol headquarters, 1821 Frontier Road.

T-WORKS is a $7.8 billion 10-year transportation program passed by the Legislature in 2010. Leading up to the passage of T-WORKS, thousands of Kansans participated in local consultation meetings hosted by KDOT to identify regional priorities.
