City Seeks Input on "The Link" between South Creek and Primrose

The City of Springfield will host an open-house-style public meeting 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012 at Cowden Elementary School, 2927 S. Kimbrough Avenue. The purpose is to discuss street improvements for The Link between South Creek and Primrose Avenue.

The Link is an accessible route for walking and bicycling along low volume slow speed streets linking greenway trails and activity centers. The proposed location for The Link south of South Creek is along Kimbrough Avenue, Montclair Street, Maryland Avenue, and the CoxHealth campus west drive. Routes along Jefferson Avenue, Kimbrough Avenue south of Montclair Street, parts of Primrose Street, and Clay Avenue have been considered. Street improvements are being designed for The Link to cross Sunset Street and Walnut Lawn Street.

The public meeting will include displays and information for a roundabout intersection at the intersection of Walnut Lawn Street and Maryland Avenue and for a crosswalk with a traffic signal on Sunset Street east of Kimbrough Avenue. Staff will be available to discuss The Link concept, alternatives considered for location of The Link, and the two street improvements being considered.
