Connected KC 2050 - 2019 Call for Projects

The Mid-America Regional Council is currently soliciting projects for inclusion in Connected KC (CKC) 2050. This is not an application for specific funding; however, inclusion in the Plan is a requirement in some cases and a boost in others for future funding opportunities.

Note: If a project is included in the current Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), no need to submit it—it will automatically be included in the fiscally-constrained project list for Connected KC 2050. If your project is NOT included in the current TIP but was included in TO2040, it must be resubmitted to be considered for inclusion on the Connected KC 2050 fiscally-constrained list.

Connected KC 2050 is the working title for an update to the region’s current metropolitan transportation plan, Transportation Outlook 2040. Per federal requirements, these plans must be updated every five years, have at least have a 20-year time horizon, and demonstrate financial constraint with resources that can reasonably be expected to be available over the life of the plan. The purpose of this call for projects is to solicit all types of transportation projects from across the Kansas City metro to be prioritized to help address the transportation needs identified for the region. These projects should be “regionally significant” in nature.
