We Are Making Progress
Construction is exciting and often complicated. It is exciting to see the new concrete framework for bioswales and rain gardens where plants and soil will clean out the pollutants that get washed off the road before the stormwater reaches the streams and rivers. It is exciting to see the beginnings of new sidewalks with a separation of pedestrians and bicyclists for improved travel safety. And now all the property needed has successfully been acquired to complete Phase 1 construction. This is vital progress that helps move the vision for Glenwood forward.
By early fall we aim to be far enough along to reopen a section for travel, beginning with northbound McVay Highway turning eastbound on Franklin towards Springfield. This should decrease the number of vehicles that need to use the detour.
Communication Helps Us All
Thank you for your understanding and patience, for sharing valuable suggestions, and for the appreciation we have received from neighbors who know that we are doing our best to get the job done safely and as quickly as possible with the least disruption. In response, we recently:
Work crews are building curbs and pouring travel lanes, working on the roundabout, and installing the utilities for new lighting.
We will continue to keep you informed, and thank you again for your support through construction.
