TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to spend $5 million this year to help cities and counties repair 3,800 bridges that are in poor condition or are structurally insufficient.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the department is restarting a program suspended in 2014 when state government struggled with revenue shortfalls.

An estimated 20 percent of the 19,000 county and city bridges in Kansas need to be repaired or replaced.
