Lane closures and delays ahead for some Kellogg commuters. Here’s when and where

East Kellogg commuters can expect lane closures between now and August while the Kansas Department of Transportation completes a geological field study for the proposed East Kellogg Expansion Project.

Survey work, which affects the section of westbound/eastbound US 400 between K-96 and S. Andover Road in Wichita, is already underway, KDOT announced Thursday.

“Traffic control will take place while drilling for the assessment is underway. Commuters should expect temporary single lane and shoulder lane closures,” KDOT said in a statement. “Motorists are advised to remain vigilant, monitor investigators and expect delays.”

KDOT says the surveys will be completed in August but gives no specific end date for the work, which will include taking core samples of the roadway and base material for analysis.

THE East Kellogg Expansion Project aims to upgrade the stretch of highway from K-96 to 159th Street in Wichita and Andover in an effort to reduce traffic congestion and increase safety, according to KDOT. Construction is expected to begin by 2025.

The state investigation is being overseen by Terracon Consultants Inc. of Olathe.
