FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Springfield Public Works, along with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Prime Trucking, Inc., Ozarks Food Harvest, Springfield Chamber of Commerce and Sperry Van Ness Rankin Company LLC, will host a Partners in Progress Dedication 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 at the MoDOT Garage (3025 E. Kearney St.) to dedicate the Packer Road Expansion Project.
The Packer Road Expansion Project began with an identified safety issue on E. Kearney Street caused by the offset alignment of Packer Road to the south and the MoDOT Southwest District Office drive to the north. The need for this intersection improvement created an opportunity for area businesses to partner with the City to expand the road north to improve vehicle access and provide for future business expansion and economic development opportunities.
The project included an adjusted street alignment, a new intersection with traffic signal and turn lanes, and the three-lane expansion of Packer Road north of Kearney Street.
