UPDATED: Public Works’ Design Guide for Public Improvements changes to take effect October 1, 2019.



Changes made to the General Conditions, Design Standards and Technical Specifications manuals of the Design Guide for Public Improvements are now posted online at and will apply to all projects accepted and permits issued on or after October 1, 2019.  

These technical manuals and drawings outline the requirements for Public Improvements and Permits constructed on City right-of-way. These changes have been developed with input from the City’s partners in the design and contracting community. Some sections have changed significantly and it is highly advised that contractors, developers and others review these documents in detail when bidding or designing work within the city.

If you have further questions or would like a summary of the changes, please contact the City of Springfield Department of Public Works Engineering Department at 417-864-1901.
