I-70/K-7 interchange approved for T-WORKS funding

June 3, 2011

The Interstate 70 and Kansas Highway 7 interchange in Bonner Springs will see close to $70 million in improvements, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback announced today.

The project is one of nine road projects in northeast Kansas, estimated at about $1.8 billion, approved under the Kansas Department of Transportation program T-WORKS, passed by the 2010 Kansas Legislature.

Brownback’s announcement, made at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., completed a four-day, five-city tour to announce the selection of major highway expansion and modernization projects.

Am I reading this wrong? Does it mean that one single intersection will get $70 million in improvements? Isn't this an interesection that was just recently (within the last several years) renovated? Meanwhile, Brownback continues to cut money to our schools which has resulted in people losing their jobs and the services to our kids will decrease even more? Someone, please correct me if I am reading this wrong.

They can't take care of what they have now! Does the word MAINTAIN mean anything.

Agree with you getagrip, but unfortunately many Americans see this is as ok.
