MoDOT News Release 

Southwest District Office 417.895.7600

March 20, 2018 10:22 AM
Eastgate Avenue south of Division Street
Scheduled to CLOSE Monday, March 26

Springfield, Greene County – Drivers who use Eastgate Avenue to access Division Street (Greene County Route YY) will have to find alternate routes starting on Monday morning, March 26, until mid-April, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. 

Eastgate Avenue will be CLOSED after morning rush hour on Monday morning, March 26, to allow contractor crews to build a connection between the existing street and a newly relocated section of Eastgate. 

It’s expected the closing of Eastgate Avenue will last until mid-April, barring any weather or construction delays. 

The work is part of a larger project to make improvements to Eastgate Avenue at Division Street and the Division Street/Route 65 interchange. 

Project Details: 

  • Repair the Division Street bridge over Route 65 and remove the concrete island allowing for two lanes westbound and one lane eastbound
  • Widen the northbound Route 65 off ramp to Division Street to provide dual left turn lanes for traffic going northbound to westbound at the interchange
  • Replace the traffic signals at Route 65/Division Street interchange 

Traffic Impacts: 

  • Lane closings and traffic shifts on Division Street at Route 65. One lane on Division Street in each direction will remain open at all times. There should be no impacts to Route 65.
  • Eastgate Avenue closed several weeks as crews connect the newly relocated road into the existing roadway. 

Private contractors also are working in the area and are making other road improvements to Division Street and to Eastgate Avenue at Chestnut Expressway. MoDOT is working with the contractors to help coordinate road work to lessen impacts to drivers. 

APAC-Central, Inc. of Fayetteville, Ark. is the prime contractor on the MoDOT project. 

The estimated total project cost is $3.5 million. 

The work is scheduled to be completed by late June 2018.  

Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule and, possibly, the completion date.
