LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A long-range plan for the state's highways suggests that Kansas Highway 10 between Lawrence and Johnson County become a partial toll road.

The Kansas Department of Transportation said Thursday that the highway should be widened in the next 20 years to six lanes.

The plan would add high occupancy toll lanes, or HOT lanes, in each direction. The HOT lanes would be free for mass transit vehicles and carpool lanes. But single-occupant vehicles would have to pay a toll.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1ada1fv ) the recommendation is part of the Five County Regional Transportation Study. That's a project by the transportation department, the Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Office and the Mid-America Regional Council.

The report identifies projects for future years, after the current state roads program ends in 2020.
