Springfield bond measure projects moving at fast pace

SPRINGFIELD – Street repair efforts funded by general obligation bond 20-296 are two years ahead of schedule with the final project set for completion this year, according to City staff. 

In 2021, four projects were completed including Olympic Street, Mohawk Boulevard, 42nd Street, and Thurston Road/Highbanks Road, with one more remaining. Centennial Boulevard between Aspen Street and Prescott Street is scheduled for repairs this year, which includes a pavement overlay and redesign and reconstruction of sidewalk ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.

The projects completed in 2021 include the following sections of streets:

Olympic Street: Mohawk Boulevard to 28th Street

42nd Street: Main Street approximately to International Paper

Thurston Road: 58th to 69th streets

Mohawk Boulevard: G Street to Hwy 126

Highbanks Road/58th Street: 52nd Street to Thurston Road 

In November 2018, Springfield voters approved a five-year $10 million general obligation bond to fund street repairs on a list of priority commercial streets in need of repair. As part of the Bond measure, the City committed to Springfield taxpayers to provide an annual Bond Measure Report describing project activity that occurred in the previous year.
