Sponsored by the City of Wichita & KDOT

This project features a series of highway interchanges and roadway improvements over five miles of highway. It includes three bridges, custom concrete patterning, railings, grills, programmable LED lighting, and landscape enhancement opportunities. The design features Wichita’s heritage inspired by flight, wind and prairie. The first segment of the project includes the Webb Road Underpass and 400,000 sq.ft. of patterned retaining walls that carry wind and prairie motifs. The second segment of the project includes Greenwich and Zelta overpasses that mark community gateways along the frontage roads. Landscape is re-vegetated prairie with an emphasis on sustainability and rain harvesting. At night, the bridges are transformed with programmable LED lighting shows, inspired by the seasons, holidays and community events. This project has exceeded everyone’s expectations, raising the bar for aesthetics in highway projects.

“Very impressive! I’m usually not a big fan of some of the artwork incorporated into transportation projects... but the LED lights and the artwork on the MSE and soldier pile walls on the current projects definitely seem like a worthwhile investment.”
– Donald Snyder, KDOT
