FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Springfield Public Works will convert the intersections of Commercial Street and Robberson Avenue and Commercial Street and Benton Avenue in the Historic Commercial Street District from two-way stops to all-way stops beginning Tuesday, June 28.
“This change is being implemented in response to concerns from C-Street business owners and residents,” said Traffic Engineer Eric Claussen. “Sight distance concerns are also a factor as Public Works prepares for on-street parking modifications to the south side of Commercial Street.”
All four approaches at both intersections will be clearly marked to alert drivers to the change. Intersections will be monitored for compliance.
