Project to Improve Visibility at 21 Intersections
In Springfield/Republic Scheduled to Begin Jan. 16

Springfield/Republic, Greene County – A project to make upgrades to improve visibility for drivers at 21 intersections scattered throughout Springfield and Republic is scheduled to begin the week of January 16, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

The work is varied at each intersection but is not limited to removing traffic signal poles in medians, reconfiguring left-turn lanes and making other modifications to help drivers better see oncoming traffic as they make left turns at the intersections.

Here is the list of the 21 intersections:

In Springfield

  • Chestnut Expressway and West Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Broadway Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Main Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Campbell Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Boonville Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Jefferson Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Benton Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Fremont Avenue
  • Chestnut Expressway and Prince Lane
  • Chestnut Expressway and Belcrest Avenue
  • Kansas Expressway and Atlantic Street
  • Kansas Expressway and Nichols Street
  • Kansas Expressway and College Street
  • Kansas Expressway and Walnut Street
  • Kansas Expressway and Mount Vernon Street
  • Glenstone Avenue and Portland/Cinderella Street
  • Glenstone Avenue and Cherokee Street
  • Glenstone Avenue and Seminole Street
  • West Bypass and Nichols Street
  • Sunshine Street and Moore Road

In Republic

  • U.S. Route 60/Missouri Route 413 and Main Street/Greene County Route P 

The initial work will start the week of January 16 with crews working on traffic signal wiring, away from traffic. The work will take several months.

Starting in the spring, when temperatures warm, crews will make modifications to medians, concrete islands and complete other necessary road work. Much of the road work will include lane closings which will be done at night. Drivers are urged to use caution at the intersections between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The prime contractor is Ewing Signal Construction of Nixa.

The estimated total project cost is $2.8 million.

The intersection projects are scheduled for completion by early November 2019. However, the contractor expects the project to be completed by summer 2018.
