Marble Street in Springfield’s South End is a dead end road that provides access to the Emerson Wight Park. As part of the City of Springfield’s CDBG-DR Road Program, improvements to Marble Street are under design. The proposed project will include an Extension of Marble Street to Dale Street. Ashmun Street which currently lies where the Marble Street extension is proposed will become part of Marble Street. A new intersection will be developed on the corner of Dale Street and Morris Street as part of this project.
In addition to the extension, the new South End Community Center will be constructed on Marble Street. The main goal of this project is to eliminate the dead end on Marble Street by providing the connection to Dale Street. This project will include pavement restoration, as well as new pavement, new sidewalks with accessible curb ramps, and the connection of Marble Street with Dale Street.
