County receives state funds for Delia bridge

Seventeen Kansas counties, including Jackson County, have been awarded a total of $8.17 million by the Kansas Department of Transportation for replacement of bridges.

KDOT received 83 applications requesting $33.2 million in funding under the Federal-Aid-Off-System Bridge Program for federal fiscal year 2019, which will begin on Oct. 1, 2018.

By federal law, a state must allocate an amount of Federal Surface Transportation Program funds for bridges not on the federal-aid systems. This amount must be equal to no less than 15 percent of the federal bridge funds it received in 2009. To comply, KDOT established the Federal-Aid Off-System Bridge Program.

Under the program, recipients can receive up to $1 million and must provide matching funds in the amount of 20 percent. 

Jackson County received $249,521.13 to replace a bridge located three miles north and half of mile west of Delia spanning Sullivan Creek. The total cost of the project is estimated at $311,901.41.

In addition to Jackson County, other counties selected to receive funding include Allen, Butler, Chase, Crawford, Ford, Franklin, Kingman, Miami, Mitchell, Montgomery, Ness, Norton, Osborne, Pottawatomie, Republic and Wabaunsee.
