FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The City of Springfield is asking for public input on the upcoming Galloway Trail Reconstruction Project located between Barton Street and Republic Road along Lone Pine Avenue. A public comment card is available through Monday, Sept. 14.
The Galloway Trail Reconstruction Project will reconstruct approximately 2,700 feet of existing asphalt trail with a new 8- to 10-foot-wide concrete surface compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. The new trail will follow the same trail alignment and will require no tree removals.
The project is planned for construction in Winter 2020/2021 and will require a 60-day closure of this section of trail. The reconstruction project will be funded primarily through a federal Surface Transportation Block Grant with a 20% required local match.
The Galloway Creek Greenway Trail is the highest-used section of trail in the City and continues to grow in popularity, connecting neighborhoods and businesses to the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, Springfield Lake, and Pershing Elementary and Middle Schools.
