Ongoing work on projects along Kellogg will affect those who drive in east Wichita.

Starting Monday, the eastbound K-96 ramp to westbound Kellogg will close until November 2021 for the construction of two bridges over the Kansas Turnpike, according to a release from the Kansas Department of Transportation. A new ramp to westbound Kellogg will be constructed.

Also, the 127th Street connection to East Kellogg is closed permanently.

Other road projects in Wichita include:

▪ Ramp closures at I-235 and Kellogg. The ramp from southbound I-235 to eastbound Kellogg closed Sunday night. The eastbound Kellogg ramp to northbound I-235 also closed. Both ramps will be closed until Saturday, Feb. 25.

The closures are part of ongoing work to redo the I-235/Kellogg interchange, which began in November 2015.

▪ The 25th Street bridge over I-235 is scheduled to be demolished this coming weekend, from Friday night through early Monday morning.

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.
