Work has begun on Glenstone Avenue from James River Freeway to Battlefield Rd.  And the Missouri Department of Transportation wants to be sure the public knows about the traffic impacts during construction.  It’s holding an open-house-style meeting today (5/1) from 4 to 6 at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center.  You can speak with MODOT representatives and ask questions about the project.

The $5 million project includes widening Glenstone Ave. to three lanes in each direction and improving intersections at Peele St., Independence St. and Republic Court.  It’s expected to be completed in November.

If you can’t make it to the meeting but would still like to take part, it will be online at
