City Wins $300k Grant for Main Street Resurfacing (10th to 17th) in 2023

A proposed project in the City of Atchison has been selected for funding by the Kansas Department of Transportation’s City Connecting Link Improvement Program (CCLIP), which funds improvements to state highways that extend through cities.

Main Street (10th to 17th), which is also on the route of K-7 Hwy through the City of Atchison, is set to receive $300,000 toward a mill and overlay project likely to be built in 2023.

Under the KDOT CCLIP program, a city is required to contribute up to 25 percent of the project cost based on its population, though some cities contribute significantly more.  Projects in this program may fall into one of three different categories including Surface Preservation (SP), Pavement Restoration (PR) or Geometric Improvement (GI).

“This fits together with other recently built projects as well as other planned improvements that are coming over the next couple years,” Assistant City Manager Justin Pregont said. “Our previous investments in the US-73 corridor, the 2nd Street corridor, the Kansas Avenue corridor, the south 5th Street corridor, the Commercial Street corridor, and now the Main Street corridor are an intentional effort to create a more inviting platform for future private investment, especially within our downtown.”
