Section of I-235 to close Friday evening to Sunday night

WICHITA, Kansas A section of I-235 will close this weekend for the placement of 12 steel beams over I-235 at 13th Street between Central Avenue and Zoo Boulevard.

The closure will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday evening, May 2, and the two-mile section of I-235 should reopen on Sunday night, May 4.

A detour will direct interstate traffic to West Street using Central and Zoo Boulevard.

All northbound traffic will exit at Central, travel 1 mile to West Street, travel north then turn left onto Zoo Boulevard and return to I-235 via the northbound ramp.

Southbound traffic will be directed using the same city streets.

The Kansas Department of Transportation highway interchange project adds a ramp from eastbound 13th Street east of Ridge Road to southbound I-235 and a ramp from northbound I-235 to westbound 13th Street.

The project is expected to reduce traffic congestion at the I-235 and Zoo Boulevard interchange and will add another route for crossing the Wichita Valley Center Floodway.

Dondlinger & Sons Construction Co. of Wichita is the lead contractor on the $23,111,124.58 project.

It should be completed by late November.
