November 2018


Construction Update

2018 was one of the busiest construction years outlined in our 2015 Long Term Needs Study. Multiple projects have recently finished, so travelers will see fewer orange cones along the road. Thank you for your patience while we modernize and improve the roadway.


See the 2018 Completed Project List.

Big Memories.

During the holiday season, take an evening to visit Botanica Garden’s Illuminations in Wichita. This breath-taking display with over two million lights is a sight you’ll want to see before it’s gone.



Meet KTA

Earlier this month, we celebrated veterans. We also sat down with two of KTA’s veterans to hear about their experience as well as their roles here at KTA.

Watch it here.

K-TAG Reminders

The holiday travel season is here, so make sure your K-TAG account is up-to-date and in good standing:

  • Link your license plate to your K-TAG

  • Sign up for automatic bank payments to avoid issues caused by expired credit cards

  • Make sure all your contact information is current and valid



Safety Tip

Watch carefully for deer, particularly at dawn and dusk!
