The morning commute in west Wichita may be slowed for some motorists by several ramp closings Monday.

Beginning at 7 a.m. the exit ramp and on-ramp for northbound I-235 will be closed at Central, said Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Hein in a news release.

The closure is for asphalt repairs on the ramp shoulders, he said, and could last as late as 7 p.m. Monday. Similar work also will cause the closure of the exit ramp from northbound I-235 to 25th Street North from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Also, the southbound I-235 exit to Central will close after noon until 7 p.m. for repairs on the shoulders.

Other roadwork this week:

▪ Concrete patching on I-235 Sundays through Thursdays will occur 7 p.m.-6 a.m.

▪ Northbound left lane from South Meridian to Kellogg will be closed this week 7 p.m.-7 a.m. for surface grinding.

▪ Westbound left and middle lanes of Kellogg under Rock Road will be closed Tuesday at 9 p.m. for concrete repairs.

The I-235 and Kellogg interchange has been the ire of drivers for years. Work began in late 2015 to reconfigure the interchange; work isn't expected to be completed until 2019.
