WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Two I-235/US-54 interchange ramps are back open. The southbound I-235 ramp to eastbound US 54 and the northbound I-235 ramp to westbound US 54 are now open.
Construction crews will be doing bridge work Saturday morning under I-235.
According to Tom Hein of KDOT, at 5:00 a.m. Saturday eastbound and westbound US 54 will be reduced to one lane for each direction under I-235. Northbound and southbound I-235 is already reduced to single lane traffic over US 54.
All four cloverleaf ramps in the I-235/US 54 interchange will be closed. This closes the northbound I-235 ramp to westbound US 54 and the southbound I-235 ramp to eastbound US 54.
Bridge repair work over US 54 lanes is expected to be completed by 7:00 p.m. Saturday and US 54 will return to two lane traffic for each direction and ramps in the NE and SW quadrants of the cloverleaf ramps will be re-opened.
The following ramps will remain closed after the overhead bridgework:
- southbound I-235 ramp to westbound US 54
- westbound US 54 ramp to southbound I-235
- eastbound US 54 ramp to northbound I-235
- eastbound US 54 ramp to West Street
