A road improvement project on U.S. 54/400 (West Kellogg) may affect travelers accessing Mid-Continent Airport during overnight hours over the next few weeks.
An asphalt mill and overlay project on the Kellogg Freeway will occur from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday nights. At times, access ramps at Kellogg and Ridge Road will be closed for work at the base of those ramps.
The first ramp to the airport affected by this project will be the eastbound Kellogg exit ramp at Ridge Road/Mid-Continent Drive. Tentatively scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday evening, the ramp will be closed to complete resurfacing. Message boards will be posted on eastbound Kellogg to advise motorists to use the Tyler Road exit and frontage road to access Mid-Continent Drive and the airport.
Because the project involves resurfacing on both directions of Kellogg, other ramps to and from the airport at Ridge Road will also be affected. Message boards will be used to make motorists aware of the temporary, nighttime ramp closures. The Kansas Department of Transportation is overseeing the project.
