* 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.
