The Springfield Public Works Department is hosting an open house about plans to widen Republic Road.
The plan is to widen the road to five lanes from the entrance of Chase, to Fremont Avenue.
The project is expected to start in April and take 18 months to complete.
The project team will be on hand tonight to meet with the public from 5pm to 7pm at Seminole Baptist Church on the southwest corner of National and Republic Road.
