Major road project in north Springfield will snarl traffic for weeks

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. Drivers traveling through north Springfield could face traffic backups for more than a month.

Missouri Department of Transportation will begin a major project to replace paved lanes.

The inside northbound and southbound lanes at Glenstone and Evergreen will be closed for a few weeks.

The affected area is near the Holiday Inn, between Kearney at Interstate 44.

"It's just one of those things that overtime things wear out. This is a 1950's era concrete pavement. It's old, it's deteriorating. There's a lot of potholes out there. It's just one of those things. It is time to get it replaced before it gets any worse," explains Transportation Project Manager for MoDOT, John Sanders.

The project is scheduled to wrap up by the fourth of July.
