A Review of Midwest Passing Lane Practices and Recommended Updates to KDOT Passing Lane Policy

KDOT’s prior review of their passing lane practices and locations was completed in 1999 by K-Tran study 97-1, “Review of Effectiveness, Location, Design and Safety of Passing Lanes in Kansas”, completed by Kansas State University. A review and update are needed of our current practices with a focus on alternating passing lanes.
