What are the Kansas Department of Transportation's definitions of a bypass and a trafficway?

Neither has official definitions within the various engineering standards the department uses, KDOT spokesman Marty Matthews said.

A trafficway is a term the department primarily has used in describing the South Lawrence Trafficway, which is a type of bypass.
