All true Mike, but that has not translated into a commitment by KS to work
towards route designation.  Without that commitment we don't have a basis to

Model: Not Determined

Phase I: Planning

There is interest in the U.S. Bicycle Route System with momentum behind USBR
66 and 76. To find out more about bicycle and pedestrian transportation in
Kansas, and to view our Kansas Bicycle Guide, please visit the DOT
Bike/Pedestrian program.

For more information contact Becky Pepper at rpepper(at)ksdot(dot)org.
