New City signage program informs motorists

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Motorists will see additional information from the City as they make their way throughout Springfield’s roadway construction zones. The Public Works and Public Information departments started a new signage program this week that gives citizens details on major projects. The first signs went up on south National Avenue Aug. 25, where a road-widening project is underway. Improvements include the addition of a southbound lane, sidewalk enhancement and utility improvements. The signs include bullet points about the project, funding source and estimated completion date. “Our last three citizen satisfaction surveys indicated that traffic is the number one concern of citizens,” said Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement. “This year’s survey further indicated that signage is among the top ways that citizens receive information about the city. We are trying to springboard off that,” Scott said. For more than a decade, the City has erected signs near future and completed projects funded by both 1/8-cent and 1/4-cent sales taxes. This expands that program to include many more projects. A map and details about major projects are included on the City’s new website, www.springfieldmo.gov. Click on the Public Works link from the services section. To sign up for notifications about roadway construction and other City news, select the “Notify Me” button. # # # For more information, contact: Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement, 417-864-1009 (office) | 417-380-3352 (cell), cscott@springfieldmo.gov.
