Leavenworth County awarded stimulus money from KDOT for projects
After the Mid-America Regional Council bypassed Leavenworth County for any of the $24 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced Tuesday it would be giving the county $1.28 million for various projects.
Of the $11.3 million set for aside for District 1 from KDOT’s remaining pot of $34.7 million, $512,567 will go to Leavenworth for storm sewers and $286,000 for overlay of 147th Street in Lansing.
Tonganoxie received $23,800 for a $33,300 pedestrian streetlight and signal to replace the current traffic lights at U.S. Highway 24-40 and Northstar Drive.
The county will be receiving $460,000 for a $575,000 project to re-deck the ST-48, a bridge over Stranger Creek.
