The City of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) are partnering to improve travel in east Wichita. The collaborative plan includes new intersection designs at Webb and Greenwich and improved access to the Turnpike. The project will be managed in two pieces: the Webb Road intersection and the Greenwich to K-96 corridor. Construction for both projects is anticipated to be complete in late 2021.
The Webb & Kellogg project is in the second phase of construction. This includes construction of south frontage road, a portion of the north front road, and the majority of the work along the east side of Webb Road. Businesses along south Kellogg will remain accessible.
Pre-construction work is occurring on the second segment of the project from Greenwich to K-96. Land has been acquired and businesses along Greenwich and from Zelta to 127th Street have moved. Utilities are being relocated and buildings are being torn down to accommodate the construction. Design plans are finalized, contract bids have been submitted and are under review, anticipate contract will be awarded in late August. Learn more here.
