The new Kansas Department of Transportation Short Line Rail Fund is part of Governor Kelly’s IKE Program, which will funnel five million dollars towards railway improvements for three years. These funds will aid in 13 renovations on three short-line railway systems, and build 15 miles of new track. Repairs will include increased capacity of bridges, improved elevator siding, and additional tracks, which will allow more grain cars to be filled at once.
