I-235 ramp closes today

Local

A major traffic change happens today at the Kellogg/I-235 interchange. Crews will close the northbound I-235 to westbound US 54 ramp at 9 a.m.

A detour is in place. Drivers will have to take eastbound Kellogg to Edwards, do a turnaround and back onto westbound Kellogg. Another option is continuing on northbound I-235 to Central, going to southbound I-235 to access westbound Kellogg.

The ramp closure allows crews to demolish the ramp,

“We eliminate some of the conflicts that happen at this interchange — ramps that loop around, you got people speeding up, slowing down to get off and on,” explained Tom Hein, with the Kansas Department of Transportation.

A new flyover ramp for northbound I-235 to westbound Kellogg will replace the ramp. 

According to Hein, the new ramp will open in the fall.

“It will be a little confusing up on I-235,” said Hein.

KDOT officials recommend adding in extra time for your commute.
