The agency said in a statement that its TA program provides funding for a variety of alternative transportation projects, which includes: the construction of pedestrian and bicycle facilities; infrastructure for non-driver access to public transportation; projects that enhance safety and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders; projects that improve scenic or environmental assets in the state; plus Safe-Routes-to-School initiatives.

The Kansas DOT added that project concepts are due by July 31 and that those selected for funding will be required to meet a minimum 20 percent local match as well as cover all non-participating expenses, such as preliminary engineering, right-of-way, utilities, etc.
