The K-156 project was identified as a regional priority at Local Consult meetings in 2018. The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) responded with practical improvements which address long-term safety and mobility concerns along this well-traveled highway and key freight corridor.
The K-156 Hodgeman County project will rehabilitate the existing pavement and add shoulders to approximately 15 miles of K-156 from four miles west of the U.S. 283 junction in Jetmore to 228 Road north of Hanston.
The project is one of five Modernization and Expansion highway projects in southwest Kansas that have been committed to construction as part of the Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program (IKE). The project is in the IKE Construction Pipeline with the construction letting planned for fall of 2023.
