Preserving a Vital Link

I-70 is not only important to Kansas, but to the country. Knowing this, KDOT put together an aggressive plan to preserve this vital link - a plan that's nearly complete today. Over the last decade, KDOT has spent approximately $625 million to rebuild or rehabilitate KDOT's portion of I-70.

KDOT is proud to have rebuilt and rehabilitated I-70 when necessary rather than just resurfacing for a smooth, temporary fix. KDOT is now approaching the completion of the rebuilding of I-70 with a 6.5-mile project to be let in fall 2006. Thanks to this work, it should be decades before another major rebuilding effort is required.
