We know you have concerns and we're working hard to meet your expectations. Click this link to see what we've been working on and our plans for the immediate future. http://bit.ly/1JWkTjt
On Friday, July 10, at approximately 5 pm, a northbound vehicle hydroplaned and lost control on the wet roadway at MM 118 on the Kansas Turnpike/I-35. The vehicle left the roadway and entered an area of rapidly moving floodwater in the northbound ditch. This was due to the flash flooding that was occurring in the area.
The driver has been identified as 21-year-old Zachary Clark of Keller, Texas.
This information has been provided from KHP’s preliminary investigative report. No other information is available at this time as the investigation is still ongoing.
As the world around us changes, the KTA wants to make sure we are meeting the expectations of today's customers. Earlier this year, we conducted a customer satisfaction survey to find out what our travelers want and expect from us. The results are in. Open this file to view the results summary.
An email scam, disguised as an E-ZPass request for payment of unpaid tolls, is once again making its way into in-boxes across the country. It first appeared early last summer. As the number of reports increase, we wanted to remind you to be extra careful when in your email inbox. This phishing scam is NOT related to the K-TAG program. This email attempts to steal personal information by stating the recipient is 'in arrears for driving on toll road' or gives 'a notice to appear' due to unpaid tolls. The email also includes a bogus invoice and zip file attachment. It contains information to make the reader believe it is from E-ZPass. You may see the E-ZPass logo, that it comes from the E-Z Agent or the E-ZPass Service Center.
K-TAG accounts are not part of the E-ZPass toll collection system. If you receive this email, we advise you to not open or respond to it. The safest thing to do is to delete the email.
With summer winding down & fall activities on the horizon, we wonder where your K-TAG will be taking you – to college, work, sporting events or festivals. The possibilities are endless.
