According to the City of Springfield, a construction project to improve the traffic signal, roadway, storm water system, utility and accessibility at the intersection of Grand Street and Kimbrough Avenue will begin June 2.
The $658,765 construction project consists of ADA, storm water, utility, and roadway improvement, including a southbound right turn lane.
This project is funded from the 1/8-Cent Transportation Sales Tax for turn lane improvements.
The entire project is scheduled to be complete in 140 calendar days, with the intersection required to be complete no later than August 18.
Public Works will begin flashing the intersection's traffic signal red in all directions starting Monday.
The all-red condition will be supplemented and ultimately replaced with "all-way" stop signs by June 6.
