Springfield begins multi-road upgrade project this week on Park Avenue
The Springfield Office of Public Works said road work would disrupt traffic on several streets in the city this week.
Work will consist of removing and replacing sections of curbs, sidewalks, wheelchair-accessible ramps and/or gutters. The entire project is anticipated to take approximately two months, assuming any rain or other weather delays don't cause too many work stoppages
Crews began the project this week with work on Park Avenue, between Governor and Monroe Streets. Other streets scheduled for work include
Motorists are asked to exercise caution when travelling on these streets and to be aware of working crews and work vehicles that are entering and exiting the work sites. It is also encouraged that alternative routes be used when during street work.
