Springfield council extends road work

Chronicle staff report

SPRINGFIELD – The City of Springfield is extending the timeline for the planning phase of the Main Street Safety Project. Springfield Mayor Sean VanGordon provided this direction after considering the amount of public comment and the sheer size of the Draft Main Street Facility Plan. At Monday night’s (April 18) Council meeting, the Mayor cited a need to allow community members and Councilors additional time to review, comment, and examine the draft plan.

Springfield’s Main Street is consistently ranked as one of the most unsafe city streets . . .
