Revolutionizing Transportation- Wichita North Junction Project Takes A Leap Forward
The Wichita North Junction project is nearing completion. The project, which received funding through a BUILD Grant of $21,000,000, began construction in 2020.
The updates will replace North Junction’s outdated single-lane system ramps with two-lane system ramps and a new flyover ramp where I-135 & K-96 connect. The project development is being led by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) with funding support from the City of Wichita and Sedgwick County.
PEC prioritized infrastructure and capacity improvements by accelerating project phases to utilize available funding. When complete, the project will have been implemented in three phases to improve the interchange progressively. The three phases are the Green (phase 1), Gold “Sub-Phase” (phase 2A), Gold (phase 2B), and Purple Project (phase 3).
PEC provided survey, transportation (roadway, stormwater, traffic, structures) and water/wastewater engineering services to this project.
