|SUMMARY:||The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has issued a revised Official 1998 Kansas Distance Chart. Reimbursement to state employees is based on the distances shown on this chart.|
K.A.R. 1-17-11 states that "Information and maps of the department of transportation shall be used in verifying mileage as reported or claimed by the traveler." We have been notified that KDOT has issued a revised Official 1998 Kansas Distance Chart. As noted on the chart, all distances were calculated along the shortest routes using the State Highway System and/or the Kansas Turnpike. Agencies should pay particular attention to changes in distance for destinations along the Kansas Turnpike. Two of these changes include the official distance between Topeka and Lawrence is now 28 miles on the 1998 chart, and the distance between Topeka and Wichita is 138 miles.
The Division of Accounts and Reports will begin reviewing payments based on this revised distance chart for all travel on or after September 1, 1998.
Copies of the revised Distance Chart may be ordered by contacting the Kansas Department of Transportation, Bureau of Transportation Planning, Room 830, DSOB, Topeka, Kansas 66612, telephone (785) 296-3841. Prepayment is required. The current price is $0.50 per copy.
