The inauguration of President-elect Biden is not the only thing scheduled for January 20. It will also be the scheduled day for the monthly KDOT lettings. Included in the January lettings are several bridge replacements and signage upgrades, as well as a new roundabout in Kansas City.
Time for the September lettings, and we’ve got a major project included.

Here’s what’s up for bids at the June monthly letting.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not affected the ability of KDOT to put projects up for bids. However, KDOT did post the following note with the list of projects for the April letting:
The Kansas Department of Transportation April 22, 2020 Letting WILL remain as scheduled with possible procedural changes to accommodate public building restrictions due to the COVID-19 emergency. We will be in contact and keep you updated as details become available. Thanks.
Most likely, this means that the bids will be opened on a conference call. The March bids were read in this manner.
KDOT had a little issue with this letting… due to the US department of Labor changing the prevailing wage rates, the all of the bids for this letting had to be discarded and a special letting called for March 10th.
These were the projects that were put up for bids on January 22.
For the December letting, we have a ‘biggie’ out of Johnson County. KDOT previously announced they had received funding to widen I-35 under the 75th Street interchange. For the December letting, that project will be up for bids.
Here’s whats up for bids in the Monthly lettings for September of 2019.
Last Saturday, I made a trip into KC to help promote the upcoming show of the Lawrence Model Railroad Club, as well as the ribbon-cutting for the Platform at the Amtrak Station in Lawrence. Meanwhile, I got some shots of some road signs of interest, particularly the re-routing of US 169 in Johnson County.
Also, I have a new roadgeek video, This one of I-70 from I-470 in Topeka to the K-10 Lecompton Interchange.
