Stimulating Economic Vitality
Economic Lifelines is pleased to announce the launch of KDOT’s Local Consult meetings next month! These meetings will take place in eight different communities across Kansas. These meetings represent a tremendous opportunity for stakeholders to advocate for continued funding and prioritization of transportation infrastructure in Kansas. The message from KDOT Secretary Julie Lorenz below shares all the details, including how the meetings are structured. Please note that they are requesting RSVPs. All are welcome and encouraged to attend, but KDOT is trying to keep an eye on headcount for facility purposes.
I hope you will give every consideration to showing up to share your story and show the broad support for transportation funding that will be crucial as Economic Lifelines works to continue the push for funding in the coming legislative session!

I’m pleased to invite you to attend Local Consult meetings in August. These meetings are an important opportunity for stakeholders, like you, to share information about needed transportation projects and help shape the future of transportation in Kansas.
We will host another round of Local Consult meetings later this Fall. At those meetings, we will build upon the discussions this summer to determine regional priorities for future transportation investments. Collaboration is at the heart of this process – just as it was for the development of the T-WORKS program. But a lot has changed in the last 10 years, and it’s time for the next transportation program to take full advantage of accelerating rate of change in technology and growing interest in transit, aviation, rail, broadband and economic vitality.
Below are the dates and locations for the August Local Consult meetings. The same information will be discussed at each meeting, so please select the date and location most convenient to you.
Please let us know which meeting you plan to attend or if you have any questions by contacting Mike Moriarty, KDOT Bureau Chief – Transportation Planning, at 785-296-8864 or Michael.Moriarty@ks.gov.
