FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Talmage Street will close between Newton Avenue and Fort Avenue beginning Monday, Nov. 14 for construction on the Talmage Street Sidewalk and Stormwater Improvement project. The street will be closed for approximately four weeks, weather permitting.
This project, commonly referred to as the Talmage Dip, includes construction of a new box culvert section to improve stormwater issues over Pea Ridge Creek. Roadway improvements and a new sidewalk will also be constructed to improve pedestrian safety along this stretch of Talmage.
The Talmage Dip project is part of the 18-month Zone Blitz, a city-wide initiative to improve the quality of life in Springfield's Northwest quadrant. Funding for the $100,000 project is coming from the ¼-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax Stormwater and School Sidewalks programs.
