WICHITA, Kansas — The Kansas Department of Transportation has released their weekly update and has informed KSN of several projects that will affect traffic this week.

On March 6 and 7 contractors for Westar will remove overhead power lines spanning I-235 between Maple and Central. The right lanes of both North and South bound I-235 will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. plus all traffic will be briefly stopped when the lines are actually being lowered to the ground.

Also, the ramp to West bound K-96 from Greenwich will be closed all next week as a drainage pipe will be installed under the existing ramp. KDOT suggests the use of the 21 St. entrance ramp as an alternative. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
