Safety project for children’s sake
SPRINGFIELD – Concerns for children’s safety sparks the start of construction projects in three Springfield school locations. According to Jeff Paschall, City Engineer for the City of Springfield, the first of the safety projects will be a raised crossing out front of Two Rivers-Dos Rios Elementary School, 1084 G Street. The City of Springfield received the Federal Community Block Grant to ensure that pedestrians would have a safe place to cross the street safely and meet the current American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, which contributes to the ramp upgrades Hamlin Middle School, 326 Centennial Blvd. will have. The 22-foot raised crossing at Two Rivers-Dos Rios Elementary School will keep speeds down in the school zone.
