FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Springfield’s Public Works department will host a public meeting 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, May 21 at All Saints Anglican Church, 2751 E. Galloway St., to present the initial design for the Galloway Street Widening Project.
The project, which ranked as the No. 2 priority project in City-wide transportation surveys in 2015 and 2018, includes:
The design and partial right-of-way phases of the project were completed in the 2016 1/4-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax renewal cycle. In 2019, Springfield voters again showed support by approving funding for the construction of the widening in the most recent renewal cycle of the 1/4-cent sales tax. The current estimated construction cost of the project is $5 million. The City plans to begin construction in fall 2020, with a targeted completion date of fall 2021.
Galloway Street will be closed in various sections to allow for grade changes along the new roadway. A detour route will be clearly marked and local access to businesses and residences will be maintained.
Retail and residential multifamily development has intensified along Lone Pine from Battlefield Road to Republic Road in recent years. The City’s Planning and Development department is currently seeking input from the public to plan for the future growth and development in the area while protecting the unique character of the area and quality of life enjoyed there. City Council will hear recommendations regarding development in Galloway July 23.
The next public meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., July 9, location TBA. Watch the Galloway Village Neighborhood Association’s Facebook page and signs posted in the Galloway area for the meeting location.
