Our mayor just reminded everyone of the construction on east Kellogg near the East Wichita Kansas Turnpike exit. You want to avoid it and it is easy to do so.
If you are coming from the south (eg, from Houston through Oklahoma):
Take Exit 42 from the Turnpike. Go north on Interstate 135 to Kellogg and go west a short distance to the downtown Wichita exit.
If you are coming from the north (eg, from Lawrence):
Take the El Dorado Exit. Go west on K-254 about 25 miles to Interstate 135. Go south on I-135. If your destination is downtown Wichita, get off at Second Street (one-way west).
Both avoid construction.
