Demolition of KTA bridge over Kellogg scheduled

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Turnpike Authority bridge over Kellogg near Webb Road will be removed over the weekend, from 10 p.m. on Friday December 2, through 5 a.m. on December 5.

Wildcat Construction is overseeing the demolition. The East Kellogg improvement project is a joint effort between the City of Wichita, Kansas Department of Transportation and KTA.

As a result eastbound Kellogg traffic will be diverted south on Rock Road, east on Harry and north on Webb Road to the south Kellogg frontage road. Westbound Kellogg traffic will detour north on Webb, west on Central and south on Rock Road back to Kellogg.

Another traffic note, traffic exiting the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) at the Kellogg toll plaza will use the eastbound frontage road, and if wanting to travel west on Kellogg will use the U-turn, ½ mile east of Webb Road and follow the detour signs.

The entrance to the Turnpike (I-35/KTA) from Kellogg will be prohibited during the bridge demolition. KTA traffic will need to follow the detour signs to the K-96 toll plaza.
