Kellogg ramp closing set for Wednesday

The Wichita Eagle

The Kansas Department of Transportation will close a Kellogg exit ramp at West Street on Wednesday morning and early afternoon.

Crews will shut down the westbound Kellogg exit to West Street from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., according to an update on department projects.

Tom Hein of KDOT said the ramp closure was part of the department’s work on the new I-235 interchange.

“The contractor is going to go in there and close it completely to remove a concrete barrier,” Hein said. “When it opens, it’ll be a little more usable.”

The department also said drivers should expect lane closures on Kellogg just west of Greenwich during the evening this week.

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.
