With more lanes, new intersection designs and improved access to the Kansas Turnpike, improvements along East Kellogg will add up to improved travel in east Wichita. The collaborative plan is a partnership between the City of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA). Improvements are being managed in two projects: the Webb Road intersection and the Greenwich to K-96 corridor. Construction for both projects is anticipated to be complete in late 2021.
Construction on the main line of East Kellogg from Webb Road through K-96 is progressing, with bridges and underpasses starting to take shape. Traffic continues to move along frontage roads, allowing dirt moving and grading to shape the terrain in the middle. A total of six bridges is included in the two projects that make up East Kellogg improvements, including one at Greenwich and another at Zelta, where platform decks for the bridges are visible.
