Changes to Public Works’ Design Guide for Public Improvements to take effect October 1, 2021


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, 2021.   

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 and generally consist of minor updates to language to provide clarity and consistency across all standards and requirements.

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.
