  •      If you use US 50 to commute between Cimarron and Dodge City or as part of your travels through Gray and Ford Counties, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) encourages you to participate in an online survey at www.us50survey1.com now through July 21. A link to the survey is also available on the project web pages at www.tinyurl.com/7h2vgx5 (US 50 in Gray County) and www.tinyurl.com/82pptvm (US 50 in Ford County).
         Take this short survey to tell KDOT what kinds of highway improvements should be included with the refined concept for the US 50 Expansion Project: Cimarron to Dodge City and which potential impacts concern you most. Your responses will help refine the conceptual improvement plans for US 50.
         KDOT is initiating the US 50 Expansion Project: Cimarron to Dodge City to expand 16 miles of US 50 as a four-lane expressway. The project is included among six Southwest Kansas highway modernization and expansion projects that are funded through T-WORKS, Kansas’ 10-year $8 billion transportation program designed to create jobs, preserve highway infrastructure, and provide multimodal economic development opportunities across the state.
         KDOT has worked with communities, including Cimarron, Dodge City, and Gray and Ford Counties to identify this project as a priority for the T-WORKS Program.  KDOT is planning to use T-WORKS funds to begin building the improvements to US 50 in Gray and Ford Counties during 2018. Construction activities are anticipated to last up to three years.
