In 2002, the town of Greensburg, KS and KDOT (Kansas Department of Transportation) agreed on a routing for a planned US 54 bypass freeway to go around the south part of their village. Now, with an essentially clean slate to work with in rebuilding their town from the F5 tornado hit that they took in early May, 2007, as part of the comprehensive rebuilding plan that they are putting together the local leaders are asking KDOT to reconsider that routing. Instead the locals now want to run it through town, 1.5 blocks north of the existing main street (Kansas Av, current US 54), halfway between Kansas Av and the railroad, for better local visibility and ease of access to the rebuilt town.
KDOT is interested.
There is also a potential for the US 54 corridor across Kansas to eventually be designated as a full '2 digit' interstate highway.
