ROSSVILLE, Kan. (AP) -- Rossville has been awarded a $532,000 federal grant to help improve its downtown streetscape.

The Kansas Department of Transportation announced it has chosen 35 projects in Kansas to receive federal transportation enhancement funding, which KDOT will administer.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/10oxWty ) the Rossville project was picked from among 91 applications. Applicants have to pay at least 20 percent of the project's costs.

Rossville city clerk, Linda Gentry, says the downtown streetscape project is expected to cost $665,000, which puts the city's share at $133,000.

Gentry said the Rossville City Council will likely consider issuing bonds to cover some of the city's share, while residents plan to work to raise money to pay the rest. Rossville is a city of about 1,150 people in northwest Shawnee County.
