The FY 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) shows spending on transportation projects in 2015 and 2016 was the highest over the last ten years.

KDOT spending

Excluding debt service and administration, spending was $1.105 billion in FY 2015 and $1.069 billion last year.  The condition of Interstate highways and bridges remain above minimum KDOT standards and are consistent with previous years, and other state highways are actually in the best condition since at least 2009.  It’s also noteworthy that Reason Foundation recently rated Kansas as having the 3rd best highway conditions in the nation.
