For Immediate Release

Road Work on Primrose Street

Terracon Consultants, Inc. (a Geotechnical Engineering Company), working for City of Springfield Public Works, will be performing subsurface boring tests from approximately Monday, Feb. 25 to Friday, March 1, 2013, on Primrose Street. These borings will provide data used in the design of future street improvements on Primrose. The tests are performed using a piece of machinery on the back of a flat bed truck that digs a hole four inches wide into the ground to obtain the physical properties of the soil and rock.

The area affected will begin a short distance west of Campbell Avenue on Westview Street and extend eastward to the East side of the Kickapoo High School soccer fields. Motorists can expect traffic to be controlled as the tests move down the street.

For any questions or concerns about traffic during these operations, call City of Springfield Public Works Traffic Engineering at 417-864-1980. For any other questions about the project, call Public Works Transportation Engineering at 417-864-1901.
