For Immediate Release

New Signal at Division Street & Packer Road

At 9 a.m. on Friday, April 2, 2010, City of Springfield signal crews will turn on the new traffic signal at Division Street and Packer Road to flashing operation. The signal will flash yellow on Division Street and red on Packer Road.

Final construction activities including paving, pavement striping, and cleanup will continue into April.

On April 12, 2010, the new traffic signal will switch to full operation. Changeable message signs will be placed on Division Street in advance of the new signal to notify approaching motorists that the signal will be turned on April 12.

This signalization project is needed to accommodate an increase in traffic on Packer Road and to help southbound truck traffic turn left onto Division Street. The project is funded through the ¼-Cent Sales Tax for Capital Improvements 2007-2010 program. Hartman & Company is the contractor for the project.
