FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Division Street will close at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad crossing west of U.S. 65, beginning 7 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 30, through Monday, Nov. 7 (weather and track availability permitting). The closure will facilitate the replacement of the existing railroad crossing and roadway surfaces.
Access will be maintained to all properties and businesses in the area. Through traffic is advised to seek an alternate route.
This project has been accelerated through a cost share partnership between the City of Springfield and the BNSF Railway Company. The City's portion will be funded through the 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax.
