Time Passages

Bridges & Highways

Wichita, Kansas
Kellogg/Oliver – US54 Interchange


“Time Passages” was selected as the aesthetic theme for the Kellogg/Oliver Interchange in Wichita, Kansas. The design incorporates text and imagery into 36 cast stone modular bas-relief panels that are placed in various combinations to span 16,000 square feet of retaining walls and a vehicular bridge. The designs include quotations regarding the passage of time, monumental Roman clocks, a 25′ vertical working sundial, and enormous leaves that appear to be scattered by the wind and passing vehicles. The quotation cast into the parapet fascia of the bridge serves as a pleasant reminder to the commuters driving under the bridge that “The Journey is the Reward”.
