Local Consult Process

You Speak. KDOT Listens.
Together, We Work.

Local Consult is KDOT’s public engagement process for the IKE program. It takes place every two years to get Kansans’ input on a list of potential expansion and modernization projects for each region. It’s also an opportunity to strengthen local partnerships, to better understand which KDOT programs matter most to communities, and to get feedback on how we can improve delivery. You speak. KDOT listens. Together, we work.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 Local Consult meetings held virtually as well as on-demand across the state. We heard you! Check back for additional information and stay tuned for the Development Pipeline announcement later this year.

2021 Local Consult Process

How we put your 
good ideas to work

The foundation of the Local Consult process is built on KDOT listening to Kansans. No one is closer to the transportation challenges in your region than you. As a two-year rolling program, IKE creates an on-going opportunity for Kansans to weigh-in on the transportation challenges facing your region, and for KDOT to listen and adapt to your region’s transportation needs and invest your tax dollars accordingly. You speak. KDOT listens. Together, we work. The IKE program’s commitment to transparency means that key data about our performance will be easily accessible to Kansans – even at your fingertips on a mobile device. More data provides more opportunities for understanding how transportation resources are used in Kansas – and supports our accountability to taxpayers.
