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. Improvements will be managed in two project: the Webb Road intersection and the Greenwich to K-96 corridor. Construction for both projects is anticipated to be complete in late 2021.
Construction continues to progress on the two East Kellogg transportation projects, from Webb Road through K-96. In November, a significant landmark was reached when East Kellogg traffic through the majority of the project moved to the newly opened frontage roads. This milestone allows work to begin on the freeway portion of the project. Soon drivers will see grading between the frontage roads and beginning construction for the Greenwich and Zelta bridges.
