County commissioners approve $11.6 million for I-235 interchange

Sedgwick County commissioners have approved adding $11.6 million to the capital improvement plan for a project that will improve the interchange at I-235 and Kellogg.

The money represents a local match for state funding.

Commissioners Karl Peterjohn and Richard Ranzau voted against the commitment, saying the city had obligated money for other projects of less priority. They said they agreed the project was important but felt city funds should be use for the local match.

Commissioners Tim Norton, Jim Skelton and Dave Unruh voted to approve the addition to the CIP.
