For Immediate Release

Lane Closures Coming Soon to National at Trafficway

As part of the National Avenue and East Trafficway Intersection Improvement project, construction activities require lane closures on National Avenue. Starting Monday Oct. 8, 2012, there will be a single southbound lane closure, and on Thursday Oct. 11, 2012, a closure of the southbound and turning lanes. During the southbound closure traffic lanes will be shifted to the northbound lanes and restricted to a one-way traffic lane in each direction. Signage will be in place to notify motorist of the planned closure and delineators will be positioned to route traffic through the construction zone.

This work is being performed by Hartman & Company, Inc. of Springfield under contract with the City. The contractor will work to minimize the impact to the public; however, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes such as Benton Avenue. This project is funded by the ¼ Cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax.

The City is asking motorists to use caution while driving through the work zone and thanks them in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.

For more information, contact: Brandon Braun, City of Springfield, at 864-1969.
