Highway construction impacting business

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Weekend road closures along Kellogg and I-235 are impacting some local businesses. 

The northbound lanes on I-235 at Kellogg closed this weekend as the K-DOT crews work to finish their current bridge project. Some residents say they are used to all the construction, but nearby businesses say it's hurting their bottom line.

"The customer traffic is just down, and we feel like it's contributable to the highway construction," said Town & Country night manager, Richard Hunt.

Hunt says even though people can still access the business, detours go around them, and drivers eventually avoid the area all together. Town & Country has been at their west Wichita location for more than 60 years. 

"If you like us, try and keep us here as long as you can," said Hunt.
