Less than four days remain to offer your feedback on the proposed list of new roadway projects in Springfield.

The survey, which will determine the next cycles of the ¼-cent and 1-8-cent sales tax programs, closes Aug. 31. Voters would still need to approve the renewal options on the April ballot for the projects to take place.

As of Friday morning, the Public Works Department said it had gathered approximately 1,130 responses to the online version of the survey. Paper copies of the survey are also available at the Citizen Resource Center inside the Busch Municipal Building lobby.

Projects currently topping the list, according to the city, include Grand Street (Kansas Avenue to Park Avenue), Galloway Street (Luster Avenue to Lone Pine Avenue), and intersection improvements at East Battlefield Road and Fremont Avenue. Survey respondents thus far have indicated that addressing needs in alternative transportation, improving traffic flow and maintenance of existing streets and infrastructure are a priority.

The survey is available at springfieldmo.gov/election.

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.
