City of Springfield Public Works

Main Avenue will close for approximately one week between Olive Street and Mill Street beginning 8:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 25, as AT&T crews begin utility relocation work in preparation for the upcoming Main Avenue Bridge Replacement project. Access to local businesses will be maintained throughout the closure.

About the Main Avenue Bridge Replacement Project

The Main Avenue Bridge Replacement Project involves the replacement of the Main Avenue Bridge with two vehicular lanes, a two-way bicycle track and ADA accessible sidewalks. The project will also include upgraded stormwater infrastructure and pedestrian lighting. Construction of the bridge is anticipated in late 2019 with a summer 2020 completion date. 

The project is funded through the voter-approved 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax.
