City recommends KDOT project at I-135 and Kellogg

August 28, 2019 - 5:08 am

In a meeting with KDOT Tuesday at the WSU Hughes Metroplex, Wichita city officials said that the Kellogg and I-135 interchange is reaching its capacity of 100,000 vehicles a day and that number is expected to continue to grow. KSN News spoke with City Engineer Gary Janzen who recommended at the meeting that KDOT consider the interchange as one of its future projects. 

"There are times when there are accidents within the interchange we've seen traffic backed up as far south as K-15, which is 5 miles south, 21st street north which is getting close to the north junction."

KDOT has to determine if they want to pursue an expansion, the city says the next step would be for KDOT to consider a study to evaluate. KDOT officials said they are hearing all concerns right now and are going to work regionally to make sure that the top priority projects are chosen.
