KDOT auctioning off shop site

The Kansas Department of Transportation is preparing to auction off its shop site in west Emporia.

Kurt Daniels, KDOT's right-of-way inventory and disposal leader, says an auction is planned for the nearly 4.4 acres of property at U.S. Highway 50 and Graphic Arts sometime in August, although a date hasn't been set. A decision on whether the building will remain in place or be razed has not been made.

KDOT is planning to move its personnel to the Kansas Turnpike property nearby in a consolidation move. KDOT first acquired part of the property in 1951, completing the purchase in 1964.
