Isn't this just a warmed-over I-66 proposal?

Limited access four lane (US - 54) reached the E side of Kingman in 1979.  Since then, pretty much nothing substantial in further construction west.    Did see a video the other day, apparently the ROW for the Kingman bypass is secured, but there is no money to build it.   Given how much trucking uses the US - 54 corridor, it should be four lane all the way to Tucumcari.  With limited access bypasses around virtually all towns along the way.

Bypasses of Kingman and Pratt shown at link above.  An old link belowis from someone opposed to the work,  is here: https://www.wichitaliberty.org/category/kansas-government/.  Warning, those allergic to political views should avoid it.

That reminds me of a detail, wasn't one of these downtown towns destroyed by a tornado around 2006 or 2007, US-54 was supposed to bypass but KSDOT decided to pass thru that town since the tornado hit the core of that town?

KDOT link is from 2006.  This has been on the books for a long time.   Did read about how former Governor Brownback used fuel tax revenues, as his own personal "piggy bank" to fund other causes in KS state government.
