WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - If you're tired of those orange construction cones in Wichita, it's only going to get worse this week. The Kansas Department of Transportation announced a list of maintenance projects that will cause slowdowns all around town.

"My route is not good. Let's put it that way, with the route I go," said Wichita driver Elizabeth Taylor. "There is a lot of construction lately. I mean, normally, I could just zip on to work. And now it takes, like, almost twice as long to get to work."

And unfortunately, KDOT says it's only going to get worse – but not for long.

It all starts overnight on Monday when eastbound K-96 to eastbound Kellogg will close, followed by eastbound Kellogg to westbound K-96 for several hours.

Tuesday, the left lane of southbound I-235 over West Street will close until 3 p.m. for bridge repair work.

Wednesday, the left lane of northbound I-235 over MacArthur Street will close until 3 p.m. for additional bridge repair work.

Then, on Thursday, the right lane of southbound I-235 at Gold Street (just west of MacArthur) will close for concrete repair work.

Taylor says she knows first-hand how frustrating the seemingly never-ending road construction cycle can be, but she says to her, it's worth it in the long run.

"I definitely get worked up about it. But I try to keep that to myself in the car. But you know, I mean, if you don't want to do it, avoid the areas. I mean, there's always ways around the construction if you don't want to go there," said Taylor. "I mean, do you want your roads to be good? Or do you want your roads like some other states that aren't good?"
