Springfield Posts Survey on Transportation Improvements Ahead of April Vote

KSMU archives

An online survey seeking public feedback on Springfield’s proposed list of new roadway projects is now available.

Citizens can visit to choose what projects should be included in the next cycle of the city’s 1/4-cent and 1/8-cent sales tax programs, if approved by voters. Both programs are up for renewal on the April 2016 ballot. Approval would keep the current tax rate the same. The two initiatives were last renewed in 2013 and 2012, respectively.   

The survey includes short descriptions of the full list of projects. It asks citizens to prioritize the projects and programs they think are most beneficial to the community and to offer any additional comments they might have. The survey is open to anyone who lives, works or visits Springfield and frequents city roadways.

Public Works engineers identified 25 proposed projects and 11 programs designed to not only make streets safer, but also more user-friendly for all modes of transportation.
