On Wednesday, Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced 26 new highway projects across the state to be added to the “development pipeline” of the Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program, or IKE, the state’s key mechanism for addressing aging roads and bridges.

The new projects statewide total an estimated $750 million of work and are now put in a development phase “where preliminary engineering and analysis is completed to prepare projects for construction,” a website giving an overview of the project list says.
