Due to ongoing work to replace water pipes within the intersection of Mill and Locust Streets in Springfield, a short-term detour has been established in the area. The detour is scheduled to be in effect for approximately two weeks starting November 1, 2018.
During this time Mill Street between Locust and Main Streets will be closed to through traffic. Westbound traffic from Mill Street will be diverted to Locust Street. Eastbound traffic approaching the intersection from Mill or Main Streets will be directed northbound on Main Street. Local traffic and access to the closed segment of Mill Street will be managed with posted signs and police details.
Drivers are advised to seek alternate routes when possible.
Work on the water pipe improvement project began in late September and is expected to continue until December. Typical construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The Commission appreciates the patience of residents, businesses, pedestrians, and drivers while this important work is performed. Please contact the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission at 413-310- 3501 with any questions regarding this project.
