What: Northbound Route 65 traffic to move from southbound lanes to new bridge over Springfield Lake DELAYED       

When: After 7 p.m. MONDAY, OCT. 9

Why: Northbound Route 65 bridge over Springfield Lake has been replaced with a new wider structure

  • Northbound Route 65 traffic will no longer shift through the median to the southbound Route 65 bridge over Springfield Lake after Tuesday, Oct. 10

(Weather or construction delays could alter the work schedule.) 

Project Summary:

  • Widen Route 65 to six lanes — three lanes in each direction — between Route 60 and a point south of Evans Road
  • Widen and rehabilitate southbound Route 65 bridge over Lake Springfield to accommodate new lanes and to lengthen eastbound Route 60-to-southbound Route 65 ramp
