WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A Kansas Department of Transportation geological field survey has begun for the proposed East Kellogg Expansion Project, focusing on the section of westbound/eastbound U.S. 400 between K-96 and S Andover Road in Wichita.

The field survey, expected to be completed by August, will gather information needed for the proposed East Kellogg Expansion Project. Survey activities will include coring the roadway and base material for analysis.
