Construction Underway on Sound Wall Along
James River Freeway (Route 60) in Springfield

Greene County - Drivers in southwest Springfield can expect occasional lane closings and crews and equipment close to traffic as construction begins on a  sound wall along James River Freeway (Route 60) beginning the week of March 17, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

A noise-reducing wall or sound wall is being built along the south side of James River Freeway between Kansas Expressway and Campbell Avenue adjacent to the Quail Creek subdivision. 

Crews will build footings for columns and will construct the framework for the walls before setting concrete panels into the framework.

It will be necessary for equipment to be set up in the eastbound auxiliary lane of James River Freeway at times.

Drivers can expect lane closings for positioning of equipment and when sections of the wall are lifted into place.  However, lane closings will be restricted to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to reduce impacts during heavy traffic volume times.

Drivers are urged to use caution. Crews and equipment will be working close to traffic. At least two lanes of James River Freeway will be open to traffic at all times.

The construction of the sound wall became necessary as part of the project to add additional lanes in each direction on James River Freeway between Kansas Expressway and Campbell Avenue last year.  A noise study was conducted and it was determined that this section of James River Freeway qualified for a noise-reducing wall.

Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule.

Project Details:

•·         Prime Contractor: Branco Enterprises, Inc., Neosho

•·         Construction Cost: $496,284

•·         Completion Date: May 2, 2014
