They've announced the projects that are moving to the Construction Pipeline.
https://www.ksdotike.org/projects/construction-pipeline-announcementst-2021

Here are the official announcements from the Governor's office: Topeka, Wichita, Dodge City, Overland Park

One of the projects moving to construction is the Polk-Quincy Viaduct in Topeka. Construction is scheduled to start in 2024. https://www.cjonline.com/story/news/local/2021/07/08/kansas-kdot-approve-funding-construction-polk-quincy-viaduct-interstate-70-ks-pedestrian-pathway/7902222002/

* US 400 passing lanes near Cherokee

Thank the Lord.  That section is brutal if you're stuck behind a slow truck or RV.

They've announced more projects to be added to the development pipeline today. https://www.ksdotike.org/projects/development-pipeline-announcements-2021. There's a lot of good info on this page.

New projects list: https://ikewebstorage.blob.core.windows.net/files/Development-Announcements-2021/new-development-pipeline-projects-info-sheet.pdf
List with info on existing IKE projects, new IKE projects, and Tworks project status: https://ikewebstorage.blob.core.windows.net/files/Development-Announcements-2021/IKE-pipeline-T-WORKS-projects-info-sheet.pdf

Biggest ones I saw (at least in my area) are the K-10 project (from K-7 to I-435) and I-35 (reconstruction and widening from Old US 56 to 119th St and a new interchange at Santa Fe).

In the Wichita area, by far the biggest project (made possible through the infrastructure bill) is redevelopment of the US 54-400/K-96 interchange and continuation of the Kellogg freeway east to just past the Butler County line.  This is tentatively estimated to cost $166 million.

That's a good project too. Will be interesting to see what projects get moved into the construction pipeline next summer.

Is it odd that they haven't found a way to move up the third phase of the JoCo Gateway and widening K-10 between K-7 and I-435, given the $4 billion Panasonic battery factory that's supposed to open by summer of 2024? K-10 is already fairly congested during rush hour without that extra traffic.

I think they're still trying to decide whether they want to put toll lanes on K-10, like they're planning for US 69.

Hmm. Hopefully not, since they could have gone that route with the SLT but decided against it. Then again, maybe they figure since so many people in JoCo will need a K-TAG anyway, might as well buy some more toll gantries, right?

I found this page on the IKE website: https://ike.ksdot.gov/projects/project-pages

They have project info about quite a few projects in here, if anyone is interested.

If induced demand is a thing, why doesn't Oklahoma City experience noticeable amounts of congestion?

Why is I-44 in midtown Tulsa less congested today than it was 15 years ago prior to the rebuild?

I was disappointed to learn the US 69 Express project lost the flyover ramp from northbound US 69 to westbound I-435. Compare the original project improvements map to the one from February of this year.

Would it have been possible to eliminate the three cloverleaf ramps at the US 69/Interstate 435 interchange, and make it a full stack interchange without requiring a great deal of right-of-way impacts?

I think the footprint is large enough to accommodate a full Maltese cross stack, though not necessarily with a high design speed for the direct connectors.  Whether it would be worth doing (with or without acquiring additional right-of-way) is another story.

This said, KDOT has a pattern of shying away from building stacks.  In the late 2000's/early 2010's they had studies identifying the Maltese cross configuration as options for I-35/I-435, K-7/K-10, and I-235/US 54.  IIRC, K-7/K-10 is still in the early planning stages, but I-35/I-435 emerged from the Johnson County Gateway project with two loop ramps, and the final configuration for I-235/US 54 is to be a stack/turban hybrid with two of the opposite-facing left-turning direct connectors crossing in plan.

Stacks are less of a lift in some states than in others, but I think Texas is pretty much the only one in which they are regarded as an "of course" proposition.

Stacks are less of a lift in some states than in others, but I think Texas is pretty much the only one in which they are regarded as an "of course" proposition.

Cost is a big reason, but I also wonder if some of that is due to weather and the possibility of the flyovers freezing faster during icy conditions. They've had to basically block off the 69 SB to 435 EB flyover a few times the past few years. I don't believe I've heard anything like that for the I-35/I-435 flyovers.

The US69/I-435 interchange probably doesn't need a full stack right now. I wish they would have done the flyover from NB 69 to 435 WB, but the rest of it is probably ok for the time being. If they'd built that flyover, the weaving issues would have been taken care of.

Missed this last month but they have selected the next projects to be moved to the Construction Pipeline: https://ikewebstorage.blob.core.windows.net/files/September-2023-Construction-Pipeline-Announcement-New-Projects-List-and-Map-FINAL.pdf

Looking at the meeting materials from the Local Consult meetings, it looks like all of the South Lawrence Trafficway has moved to the construction pipeline now with the last section to begin construction in FY26.

EDIT: They have a virtual meeting next week for these Local consults if anyone is interested: https://www.ksdot.gov/Assets/wwwksdotorg/Headquarters/PDF_Files/pressrelease2023/Virtual_Local_Consult_Release.pdf
