The K-96 Improvements Project aims to upgrade the K-96 corridor between I-135 and I-35. Through traffic engineering studies and environmental review, the project will explore pavement replacement, adding new lanes and will include upgrades to Hillside, Oliver, Woodlawn, Rock, Webb, Greenwich, and 21st interchanges. Improvements are needed to enhance safety, relieve traffic congestion, and increase capacity to keep Kansans moving.
The project is currently underway with early stages of investigative work. From 2022 to 2023 we will explore potential design concepts along with environmental review to assess environmental, economic and social impacts. Starting in 2024, we will finalize the design of the K-96 improvements and complete preconstruction activities, construction could begin as early as 2026.
