Accountability and Commitments

At KDOT we are committed to delivering the IKE program with as much transparency AND accountability as possible. These are hard-earned tax dollars at work. The data on this website will help Kansans know where AND how their money is being invested to maintain and enhance the transportation system across Kansas. As President Eisenhower said, “Our real problem is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow.” KDOT is ready to do all we can to support a bright future for our state and its people.

Five-Year Investment Targets

The IKE Program is designed to be transparent so that Kansans – the taxpayers who are the closest to and most affected by transportation issues – can see how their funds are being used.

Track how close each KDOT district is to meeting their five-year investment target using the dashboard below. You will also be able to see what has been spent per KDOT district overall in relation to preservation, modernization and expansion projects by toggling between the categories.

IKE legislation requires KDOT to establish minimum commitments of modernization and expansion investment levels. The graphs below show those minimum levels for each district. At least 40 percent of the minimum amount for each district must be let to construction by the end of the program’s fifth year in 2025. The graphs also provide estimates for preservation work, which will be the majority of the total program investment. Preservation projects must all be let to construction by the end of the program’s 10th and final year in 2030.

Before any IKE modernization or expansion projects are built, at least one phase of all delayed T-WORKS projects must be let to construction. Being let to construction means KDOT has put a project out for bid and it has been awarded to a contractor.

Investment allocations are estimated by district with the goal of delivering a safe, well-functioning and well-maintained highway system statewide. Preservation allocations are based on the condition and number of state highway miles. Modernization and expansion district allocations are determined by four scoring categories that consider factors like safety, population, congestion, deficient shoulders, freight, and sales tax. More information about how the investment targets were determined can be found here.


Governor Laura Kelly, the Kansas Legislature and KDOT believe it is important for all Kansans to benefit from the IKE program. Thus, IKE legislation requires at least $8 million to be invested in each county across Kansas. This $8 Million Promise to Kansans will be made up of investments in highway preservation, expansion and modernization, aviation, transit, rail, bicycle/pedestrian projects and others that address technology and economic development.

Below you can see the overall progress of KDOT's $8 million promise to the state's 105 counties.

NOTES: Completed Cost reflects the funds spent on IKE Program projects that have been completed and are open for use. Scheduled Cost reflects estimates for identified IKE Program projects that have not been completed yet or fund payments that have not occurred but are estimated to be made in the next year. These numbers will change over the course of the 10-year IKE Program and will be applied to each county’s $8 Million Promise to Kansans as projects are completed. Dollars shown here reflect federal, state and local funding sources. Remaining T-WORKS projects will not be counted toward the $8 million Promise to Kansans. Please email with questions and for more detail about these tables.

Information about projects over $5 million

The IKE legislation requires KDOT to make information available about IKE projects with a construction cost of more than $5 million. This information allows for a greater level of transparency for the largest transportation projects in Kansas.

This table, updated monthly, provides a snapshot of these projects, including general project information, the project’s bid cost, and contractor the contract was awarded to. 

A full list of bids for each project – including those that were not selected – will be updated in KDOT’s Annual Report Appendix section each January.

  • In some cases, KDOT combines smaller projects together in a package to take advantage of economies of scale. Where applicable, these package projects are listed underneath the bold header of the project number.
  • Final contract amounts will be updated once the contract is closed and all costs are finalized.
