Kansas State Highways

The Kansas State Highway System, not including Interstates or US Numbered Highways, consists of 385 state highways with a total length of 7,347 miles. These roads are maintained by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and provide a network of transportation throughout the state.


The state highways are numbered in a sequential system, with the numbers starting at 1 and increasing as the roads move away from Topeka. The roads are also divided into four categories: primary, secondary, urban, and city connecting links. Primary roads are the most important roads in the state and are used for long-distance travel. Secondary roads are less important and are used for local travel. Urban roads are located within cities and are used for both local and long-distance travel. City connecting links are short roads that connect state highways to cities.
