The Washington City Council is pleased to announce that the East 2nd Street Rehabilitation Project was selected to receive state funds from the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Spring 2023 Cost Share Program.  The project is selected to receive a maximum award of $1,500,000, which will aid in the construction phase.

The rehabilitation will include complete reconstruction of the roadway, reinforced box culvert replacement, as well as new curb and gutter, sidewalk, retaining walls and curb ramps.
