TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ State transportation officials now expect Kansas to receive about $380 million for transportation projects from the federal stimulus plan that passed the House and Senate today.
The Kansas Department of Transportation said Friday the money will include an estimated $350 million for highway construction and improvements.
KDOT said the total also includes $27 million to be spent on transit projects throughout the state.
