WHAT: Information Open House for Kansas Avenue Roadway Improvement Project

WHEN: 5-7 p.m., Thursday, July 14

WHERE: Amazing Grace Fellowship Church (3801 S. Kansas Ave.)

The City of Springfield is gathering feedback on conceptual design plans for safety and pedestrian improvements along Kansas Avenue between Walnut Lawn and Maplewood streets in the Greater Parkcrest Neighborhood.  

An informational open house is scheduled 5-7 p.m., Thursday, July 14 at Amazing Grace Fellowship Church (3801 S. Kansas Ave) for residents and property owners to learn more about the project and provide feedback. Input can also be submitted virtually by visiting  

The goal of the future project is to improve motorist safety by reducing the height difference between the roadway and connecting driveways and eliminating the open ditches on either side of Kansas Avenue. The project will include the reconstruction of the roadway with the addition of curb and gutter and construction of new underground stormwater infrastructure. The project will improve pedestrian connectivity through the addition of crosswalks and construction of a new sidewalk along the east side of Kansas Avenue and multi-use path along the west side.
