Multiple airports in Western Kansas to receive KDOT funding

andy lambertJanuary 15, 2014


Twenty-seven projects have been selected to receive funding to enhance safety and service at public-use airports in the state through the Kansas Airport Improvement Program.


The Kansas Department of Transportation’s Division of Aviation, which manages the program, received 95 applications for projects totaling more than $35 million.  Recognizing the needs of continued investment in aviation infrastructure, the 2010 Kansas Legislature passed the T-WORKS Transportation Program, and gave the Kansas Airport Improvement Program (KAIP) a funding level of $5 million a year. Screen shot 2013-12-12 at 11.23.39 AM


“Each year the project selection process becomes more competitive,” said Jesse R. Romo, KDOT Director of Aviation.  “The projects selected have a great geographic spread across the state and continue to preserve our airport system to a level that’s beneficial to the communities.”


Under guidelines of the program, project sponsors are required to pay a minimum of 10 percent of the total project costs, up to a maximum of 50 percent based on project category.
