Groundbreaking on East Kellogg Improvements
Kellogg & Webb, one of the busiest intersections in the City, is getting a face-lift.
"Pardon our dust" said City Councilman Pete Meitzner at the groundbreaking for the east Kellogg improvements project, "Cones and cranes are a good thing in a community."
The City of Wichita, Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA), and Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT), broke ground today at the intersection of Kellogg and Webb, to launch the start of the $300 million east Kellogg improvements project.
In attendance were Mike King, Kansas Transportation Secretary and Director of the KTA; Pete Meitzner, Wichita City Council Member; Roger McClellan, Wildcat Construction President, and other state, local, and project leaders. King officiated the groundbreaking.
Roger McClellan, Wildcat Construction President, voiced his concerns about safety throughout the construction process, asking drivers in the area to try to not get caught up in watching the machinery and to please focus on the road.
The east Kellogg improvement project will begin this month and will be completed in 2019, weather permitting. The project consists of two sections: Kellogg & Webb and Greenwich to K-96.
