I-235 & Kellogg interchange project nears completion

Good news for west siders in Wichita. The Kellogg and I-235 interchange is almost complete.

Crews still have a few things left on the to-do list, but traffic should be moving smoothly through the area.

Drivers are now able to drive through the entire area without slowing down for construction zones, or merging from three lanes into one. All ramps and lanes are now open, after three years of work.

KDOT says the project is ahead of schedule.

KDOT says crews are still working on things like landscaping, bridge painting and fence installation. Those projects will be going on through June, but should not impact traffic too much.

"These things happen, plus there are some punch list things that will happen," said Tom Hein with KDOT. "But I don't look for the big closures that we had that went down to a single lane from three lanes of traffic, so I think we're in the clear there, but we will see an occasional lane closure."

Drivers should still be on the lookout for any construction crews until June.
