Kansas Transportation Enhancements Committee
Dennis Enslinger, Prairie Village, Kan.
Scope of Work
In September 2005, The Total Transportation Policy Committee approved the formation of a Kansas Transportation Enhancements (TE) Committee to review and rank projects in the MARC Metropolitan Planning Area in response to a request from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT).
An evaluation process will be developed this year by staff and adopted by the Kansas TE Committee. KDOT will incorporate the input from MARC into its review and selection processes.
Upcoming meeting information:
MARC’s Kansas Transportation Enhancements Committee will meet on April 4th at the Mid-America Regional Council in the Broadway Room on the 1st Floor to perform a review of applications and make recommendations for the Total Transportation Policy Committee. While this is an open meeting, seating is limited. Please arrive early if you plan to attend.
Applicants will be given 15 minutes to present each project and address questions from the committee. In the afternoon, the committee will review project scores and complete project ranking before forming recommendations. These recommendations will proceed to the next Total Transportation Policy Committee Meeting on Tuesday April 16, 2013.
The Kansas Department of Transportation will take under advisement recommendations from the TTPC and will announce project selections in early June. The KS TE Committee will meet again after the KDOT announcement to consider programming of funds allocated to the MARC region.
A total of 12 applications were submitted within the MARC MPO area. The total federal amount requested in our area is just over $9.9 million. Total federal funding available statewide is approximately $15 million.
Of the projects submitted in our area, eleven of the applications fall under the bicycle and pedestrian category and one application falls under scenic enhancement. You may download a copy of the applications in a single compressed zip file or as individually pdfs.
