Not yet Springfield!

 Delays, and unforeseen issues have caused the widening project of Republic Road from three lanes to five lanes to be a little behind schedule.

Construction crews were hoping to have that stretch of road to be completed by now.

Initially the final touches to the Republic Road intersection at South Campbell intersection were to be completed last December however, unknown utilities had to be relocated, and sinkholes have been an issue.

The new completion date is now expected in May 2024.

As crews near the completion, drivers can anticipate delays during the overnight hours and one lane of traffic can be expected at times.
