WICHITA – In what can be described as a milestone in the transportation construction project on East Kellogg, the Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) bridge over Kellogg near Webb Road will be removed over a weekend, from 10 p.m. on Friday December 2, through 5 a.m. on December 5.

Wildcat Construction is overseeing the demolition. The East Kellogg improvement project is a joint effort between the City of Wichita, Kansas Department of Transportation and KTA.

As a result, changes in traffic routes can be expected.


November 21-27

 

Beginning Monday, November 21,

  • Kellogg’s eastbound south frontage road, roughly between Webb and Greenwich, will open
  • Left turns at eastbound Kellogg & Webb Road will be prohibited. A U-turn option for eastbound Kellogg will be provided approximately ½ mile east of Webb Road.

November 28 - December 2

 

On Monday, November 28, the KTA bridge over Kellogg near Webb Road is expected to close as the first step toward demolition of that bridge. This means:

  • All traffic exiting the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) at the Kellogg toll plaza will use the eastbound south frontage road. Drivers wishing to go west on Kellogg will need to use the provided U-Turn, ½ mile east of Webb Road.
  • Access to the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) via westbound Kellogg will detour to Rock Road then come back eastbound to the Kellogg/KTA entrance.

December 2-5

 

 

Beginning Friday, December 2 at 10 p.m. through Monday, December 5 at 5 a.m., Kellogg between Rock and Webb Roads will be closed for the removal of the Turnpike bridge over Kellogg. This means:

  • Eastbound Kellogg traffic will be diverted south on Rock Road, east on Harry and north on Webb Road to the south Kellogg frontage road
  • Westbound Kellogg traffic will detour north on Webb, west on Central and south on Rock Road back to Kellogg
  • Traffic exiting the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) at the Kellogg toll plaza will use the eastbound frontage road, and if wanting to travel west on Kellogg will use the U-turn, ½ mile east of Webb Road and follow the detour signs
  • Entrance to the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) from Kellogg will be prohibited during the bridge demolition. KTA traffic will need to follow the detour signs to the K-96 toll plaza.

Once the bridge demolition is complete, access to and from the Kansas Turnpike at the Kellogg toll plaza will be via eastbound Kellogg only. Since all left turns at Webb Road will be prohibited, Kellogg drivers will need to use U-turn lanes ½ mile east of Webb on Kellogg and the U-turn lane at Rock Road.

Construction on the first East Kellogg Improvement project started in August 2015 including a redesigned Kellogg and Webb intersection and widening of Kellogg from Webb to Greenwich. A second project, started earlier this year, will continue widening Kellogg to a six-lane freeway between Greenwich and K-96. In addition, new ramps will be constructed for southbound I-35/KTA to westbound US 54 and eastbound US 54 to both northbound and southbound I-35/KTA. Both projects are expected to be complete in late 2021, weather permitting.

Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead and stay informed to improve their travel during these changes and throughout the project. More information is available at www.e54ict.com and via Twitter at @E54ict.​​​
