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.
This is a busy week in Downtown Springfield! Here’s a map of closures. Explanations are posted below.
Park Central East will close to through traffic just east of Robberson Avenue from 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22. The City of Springfield will be making emergency stormwater infrastructure repairs. Please use an alternate route. All businesses will remain open to foot traffic.
The city will also close Walnut Street between Grant Avenue and Main Avenue from 6 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 through 6 a.m. Friday, Aug. 24 (weather permitting). This will be for street improvements as part of the Grant Avenue and Route 66 Streetscape project. This is from Mother’s Brewing Company to Casper’s.
The Grant Avenue and Route 66 Streetscape project is still impacting Grant Avenue, near the intersections with Walnut and College. Crews are working near Mother’s Brewing Company and Bud’s Tire and Wheel. There are currently no road closures on that block of Grant. Crews are working along the side of the road and lanes have shifted, so be alert.
City Utilities is currently working on West Olive St, between North Campbell Ave. and North Robberson Ave. This is north of Park Central Square. Be alert for lane and road closures.
Expect work along South Jefferson Ave. One intersection involved is East McDaniel, near Missouri State University’s Kenneth E. Meyer Alumni Center. The other is West Walnut, next to Aviary Cafe and Pickleman’s Gourmet Café.
City Utilities is replacing gas lines. The project started July 23 and should continue for approximately one month. Contact Ryan Scott at (417) 831-8624 with questions.
