Kellogg will close again this weekend in west Wichita as part of the continuing project at I-235.

Weather permitting, Kellogg will begin closing Friday around 5 p.m. in both directions under I-235. All lanes of I-235 over Kellogg will also be closed.

All lanes are scheduled to re-open before 6 a.m. Monday.

The closures will allow crews to install eight more steel beams for the northbound I-235 ramp to westbound Kellogg.

A similar closure is scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 2.

Drivers in east Wichita will notice a change in the traffic pattern around the Kellogg and Greenwich Road area beginning Saturday.

New frontage roads along the north and south of East Kellogg are opening from Greenwich to Zelta.

Wichita officials say moving traffic to the frontage roads means construction work on Kellogg can begin.

The City of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Turnpike Authority started projects to improve travel in east Wichita about two years ago.

A major interchange on East Kellogg is scheduled to close on Monday for four years. KMUW's Carla Eckels says it's the next phase of an ongoing project.

The Kansas Department of Transportation plans to close the ramp where eastbound K-96 joins westbound Kellogg until the year 2021.

Spokesperson Tom Hein says the ramp closure will allow several segments of the Kellogg freeway in that general area to be constructed.

Updated Saturday, Dec. 3, 4:00 p.m.: East Kellogg between Rock Road and Webb Road is now reopen to traffic after contractors completed removal of the Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) bridge earlier than expected.

According to a release from the city of Wichita, demolition of the bridge began just after 10 p.m. on Friday night and was completed well in advance of the projected Monday morning schedule.

An earlier version of this story mentioned the wrong interstate. It is the Kellogg/I-235 interchange project.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says work is on schedule for the first phase of a multi-year highway project in west Wichita.

The Kellogg/I-235 Interchange rebuild--dubbed the Red Project--began in November. Wichita Metro Public Affairs Manager Tom Hein says a number of improvements, including new ramps, are being put into place.

More than just a road, Kellogg is a major landmark, separating the main downtown and upscale districts of central and northern Wichita from the aviation plants and blue-collar neighborhoods that lie “south of Kellogg.”
