The Kansas Department of Transportation is accepting applications through the federal Transportation Enhancements Alternatives programs in Kansas for fiscal year 2012. These funds can be used for a variety of projects such as bicycle and pedestrian facilities, landscaping and scenic beautification, historic preservation, bicycle and pedestrian safety and educational activities, and reducing polluted water runoff from roadways. The application deadline is Feb. 13, 2013.
Projects must relate to surface transportation and involve at least one of the 12 eligible categories. Only local governing entities can submit applications, and a 20 percent local match is required for this reimbursement program.
Sponsors who submit applications for projects located Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami or Wyandotte counties within MARC’s metropolitan planning boundary should also send a copy of their applications to MARC by Feb. 15, 2013. The Kansas Transportation Enhancements Committee will review these applications independently from KDOT and forward recommendations to MARC’s Total Transportation Policy Committee. Applicants may be required to provide additional information for this review.
KDOT expects to announce which projects will receive funding in late summer 2013.
