Roads

Kansas has a world-class network of public roads and state- and interstate-highways that is more than 140,000 miles long which has turned Kansas into a central trucking hub. 

Our network of public roads and state highways provides a route for businesses within our communities to reach interstate highways with minimal interruptions. Our interstates allow convenient access to local, national and global markets.

Road map

Following the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Kansas has become an international trade crossroads. The 1,500 miles of I-35 and I-29 create the only central interstate highway corridor linking the three countries of North America.

It’s no secret that some of the nation’s leading trucking lines have major facilities in Kansas. Trucks can quickly and efficiently reach international ports on either coast, NAFTA trade partners to the north and south and any markets that fall in-between. Major trade corridors with routes through Kansas include:

  • I-70, spanning the country coast-to-coast from Utah to Maryland.
  • I-135 and U.S. 81, establishing a route between Texas to North Dakota.
  • I-29, creating a route from Kansas City to the United States/ Canadian border.
  • U.S. 400, providing access to I-35, I-135, U.S. 81 & I-44.
  • U.S. 69, traversing from Minnesota to Texas.
