<H1>Mileage and Travel in Kansas - 2016</H1>
<H2>Introduction</H2>
<P>As of December 31, 2016, there were 142,047 miles of roads, streets and highways in Kansas. Average daily travel was 88,041,940 vehicle-miles. This is an increase of 0.99% in mileage and 2.01% in travel from 2015. The additional 1,393 miles consists of local roadways identified due to improved data sharing processes. Travel growth occurred mainly on the Interstate and Freeway systems, with stronger growth on rural segments. Rural Collector and Local travel declined, Urban Local travel grew because of the additional mileage.</P>
<P>The Kansas State Highway System (<A href="Glossary.html#SHS">SHS</A>) including City Connecting Links (<A href="Glossary.html#CCL">CCL</A>) totals 10,296 miles and carries average daily travel of 45,435,500 vehicle-miles. This is a minor reduction from the 2015 mileage due to realignment of K-10 in Lawrence and a 2.3% increase in travel. The Kansas Turnpike (<A href="Glossary.html#KTA">KTA</A>) is 238.2 miles long, with 5,018,699 (4,974,051) daily vehicle-miles of travel. Interstate, US, and Kansas routes make up 7.5% of the total Kansas road mileage and carry 57% of total travel.

Mileage and Travel in Kansas - 2016

Mileage and Travel in Kansas - 2016

Introduction

As of December 31, 2016, there were 142,047 miles of roads, streets and highways in Kansas. Average daily travel was 88,041,940 vehicle-miles. This is an increase of 0.99% in mileage and 2.01% in travel from 2015. The additional 1,393 miles consists of local roadways identified due to improved data sharing processes. Travel growth occurred mainly on the Interstate and Freeway systems, with stronger growth on rural segments. Rural Collector and Local travel declined, Urban Local travel grew because of the additional mileage.

The Kansas State Highway System (SHS) including City Connecting Links (CCL) totals 10,296 miles and carries average daily travel of 45,435,500 vehicle-miles. This is a minor reduction from the 2015 mileage due to realignment of K-10 in Lawrence and a 2.3% increase in travel. The Kansas Turnpike (KTA) is 238.2 miles long, with 5,018,699 (4,974,051) daily vehicle-miles of travel. Interstate, US, and Kansas routes make up 7.5% of the total Kansas road mileage and carry 57% of total travel.

Under 23 CFR 460 the State must report annually to the federal government about the extent of the roadway network in a Mileage Certification to FHWA. This data ultimately is used for apportionment of highway safety funds. Details of road inventory and usage are reported separately in the Highway Performance Monitoring System.

In October 2012, MAP-21 provisions added some 700 miles of existing roadways to the NHS. This included several SHS routes and all non-State urban routes that were functionally classified as Principal Arterial. Review of the functional classification system in 2012-2016 has removed many of these additional routes from the NHS.

The majority of the NHS changes in 2016 affected routes in the city of Topeka, with other changes in El Dorado, Arkansas City, Parsons, Coffeyville, and Salina.

Under Kansas Statutes Annotated Section 79-3425C, portions of the fuel tax money collected by the State are distributed to County and City governments based on net mileage and road usage. The KDOT certifies these values annually in a Transmittal to the State Treasurer. Per the KSA, the networks reported for Travel by County exclude the Interstate system, and Mileage by County includes all roads.

Annual Summaries

In addition to the Federal Mileage Certification and Treasurer Transmittal, we produce several reports for specific aspects of road usage.

Annual Detail Tables

We produce several detail reports showing data summaries by County or City, instead of producing individual reports for these entities. All of the annual Mileage and Travel reports are based on the 2016 summary table, which is a compilation of data on State, County, City, and Federal roadways. This table is provided for reference as a convenience to researchers, but is not considered the official record of roadway data.
