FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Various lane closures and traffic shifts are expected to continue through Nov. 15 at the intersection of Battlefield Road and Lone Pine Avenue as crews work to complete turn lane improvements and pavement repair associated with the Battlefield Corridor Improvement Project.
Traffic impacts will primarily restrict left turn movements in the intersection. Contractors anticipate these to be the last long-term lane closures necessary to complete roadway improvements at the intersection.
Traffic impacts beginning Monday, Nov. 6:
- The inside “passing” lane of westbound traffic on Battlefield Road will close from Lakeside Avenue to Lone Pine Avenue. A single lane of westbound traffic will continue to flow via the outside “driving” lane.
- Left turn lane will be closed from westbound Battlefield to southbound Lone Pine Avenue
- Left turn lane will be closed from Southbound Lone Pine to Eastbound Battlefield
- Left turn lane will be closed northbound Lone Pine to westbound Battlefield Road
Access will be maintained to all businesses in the area. Motorists are advised to expect delays and to seek an alternate route if possible.
“We’d like to urge drivers to use caution when traveling through any construction zone and remind everyone of the importance of obeying all work zone signage,” says Project Manager Nicholas Edelman. “We have added additional signage and closure barricades in the area in an effort to keep motorists and construction crews safe. We thank you for your patience and expect to wrap up in a few weeks.”
Improvements at the Battlefield and Lone Pine intersection are being constructed as part of the Battlefield Corridor Improvement Project, expected for completion this winter. Learn more about the project at springfieldmo.gov/battlefieldcorridor.
