Downtown Springfield is constantly growing and changing, which occasionally means construction work. Get where you’re going without the hassle. Check this page for scheduled street and parking garage closures.
The City of Springfield is working on replacing the Main Avenue Bridge over Jordan Creek, just south of the Hotel of Terror. As part of the project, AT&T is relocating its facilities. The relocation work started Feb. 18. Beginning the week of Feb. 25, AT&T will be open cutting Main Avenue between the railroad tracks and the drive entrance to Butler Rosenbury. The closure of Main Avenue will last for approximately 1 week, weather dependent.
Construction continues on the Hotel Vandivort expansion. Be prepared for street closures along East McDaniel St. between South Ave. and South Jefferson Ave. South Robberson Ave. may also be impacted.
