WICHITA, Kan. – East Kellogg drivers will experience a significant traffic change on Saturday, November 18 as construction from Webb Road to K-96 progresses.
At approximately 7 a.m., new frontage roads along the north and south of East Kellogg will open to traffic from Greenwich to Zelta. Side roads in this area will be closed for a few minutes as traffic is shifted onto the new frontage roads.
Once this transition occurs, Kellogg traffic will utilize the frontage roads between Webb and Zelta. This milestone will allow for work to begin on the freeway.
Travelers should be aware that left turns are still restricted at Webb but will be allowed at Greenwich and Zelta. Speed limits will remain at 40mph on the frontage roads throughout the project.
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

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 in 2016, 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. Kellogg and Webb is expected to be complete in late 2019 and Kellogg, Greenwich to K-96 is expected to be complete in late 2021, weather permitting.
