FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
National Avenue will remain closed at Bonaire Drive, north of Norton Road, through early June as Springfield Public Works continues roadway repairs due to a failed stormwater culvert bridge.
Repairs were delayed due to the purchase of additional right-of-way needed to facilitate the repair and utility relocation. Excavation of the existing box culvert is expected to begin May 1, weather dependent, with a new culvert expected for installation beginning May 15. The repair project is anticipated for completion in early June, weather permitting.
Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour routes. Southbound traffic will detour via Camorene Street, Vernon Road, and Smith Street. Northbound traffic will detour via McClernon Street.
