I'm not qualified to do the math but your question is an important one.
What would be the net to Kansas if the project was awarded to a Kansas company, using mostly Kansas subcontractors (I assume road construction uses subs) when that money, income tax, etc. goes back into the state instead of sending a large portion of it out of state. Though there is a substantial difference in the bids, the value of keeping that money in the pockets of residents would have a significant impact, I would think, beyond just the contract award amount.
