5-29-18 Good News: Open Now

Thanks to everyone once again for your patience throughout the project. – Kristi Krueger, City of Springfield Project Manager and Principal Engineer

New Franklin Boulevard opened for traffic last week, four months ahead of schedule. The project is touching up some final items in the coming weeks. All of the project elements are completed and in use, including new protected bike facilities, pedestrian facilities, stormwater facilities, landscaping, decorative LED lighting, and roundabouts.

The team worked hard to respond to resident questions, business concerns, and construction challenges. Now that the roundabouts are fully open, please use caution and yield to traffic in the roundabout and to pedestrians crossing the roadway. Here is a link to our multi-lane roundabout brochure.
