DALLAS — Kansas sees a $1.5 billion annual gap over the next 20 years between infrastructure needs and available revenue, with needs of $2.95 billion a year outstripping $1.43 billion of city, state, and federal funding.

Potential solutions to the funding gap outlined in a draft plan developed by the Kansas Department of Transportation include expanding its bonding authority, indexing fuel and vehicle taxes to the inflation rate, and financing at least a portion of new highway projects through tolls or private investments.
