Drivers in east Wichita will notice a change in the traffic pattern around the Kellogg and Greenwich Road area beginning Saturday.

New frontage roads along the north and south of East Kellogg are opening from Greenwich to Zelta.

Wichita officials say moving traffic to the frontage roads means construction work on Kellogg can begin.

The City of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Turnpike Authority started projects to improve travel in east Wichita about two years ago.

The plan includes new intersection designs at Webb and Greenwich, as well as improved access to the Turnpike.

The construction work should be done in late 2021.
