The Kansas Department of Transportation has selected 20 projects for inclusion in its Transportation Alternatives program, including awarding $191,452 to a project in Cimarron to build a shared use path on Main Street.

KDOT received 43 applications from local units of government for funding consideration totaling more than $22.5 million and awarded $11.5 million to the 20 projects. Funding recipients must provide a minimum of 20 percent of the project cost themselves.

Transportation Alternatives projects under this federal program include facilities for pedestrians and bicycles; rehabilitation of historic transportation buildings, structures or facilities; construction of turnouts, overlooks and viewing areas; conversion of abandoned railway corridors to trails; community improvement activities such as downtown streetscape enhancements and the control or removal of outdoor advertising.
