Kansas transportation officials have released a list of more than 430 construction projects totaling $1.1 billion to be carried out in the next two budget years, including several that are already under way.
The list includes extending the Kellogg freeway to the east beyond the congested intersection of Kellogg and Webb Road and connecting 13th Street to I-235 in west Wichita.
On the east side, Shawn Mellies, interim special projects engineer for the City of Wichita, told the Wichita Eagle the expansion will send through traffic under the Webb-Kellogg intersection. "The project presents challenges because the two interchanges, the Turnpike and Webb, are within a quarter of a mile of each other," Mellies said.
The projects are part of the state's 10-year program for improving highways, airports and public transportation.
KDOT said the projects cover the fiscal year that began July 1 and will continue through June 30, 2015.
