About the Project

This project was “Completed as Promised” thanks to cost-share dollars from the ¼-cent capital improvements and 1/8-cent transportation sales tax approved by Springfield voters. Partners City of Springfield, Greene County, Ozarks Transportation Organization and Missouri Department of Transportation, completed the $12.5 million project on time and on budget.

The project included converting the interchange into a diverging diamond configuration and rebuilding the bridge. Also completed were northbound and southbound lanes on highway 65 to connect Sunshine Street and Battlefield Road ramps and installing a new traffic signal at Battlefield Road and Woodstock Avenue.

The prime contractor on the project was Hartman and Company, Inc.

“We simply could not do these sorts of projects without important partnerships, and of course, the support of the voters,” said Public Works Director Dan Smith. “Thank you to everyone involved, especially the neighbors, both commercial and residential, for your patience and support through the construction of this vital intersection in our community.”
