Improving Your Commute

The East Kellogg Expansion Project

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.
