New Diverging Diamond for Springfield - Public Meeting Next Week

This January work will begin to replace the Battlefield Road bridge over Route 65 one-half at a time. Unlike other diverging diamond interchanges recently built in the Springfield area, this interchange will first be converted to a diverging diamond in January or early February, then the Battlefield Road bridge will be reconstructed. A public meeting is being held on Nov. 18 to discuss the project.

Messages Flash Warning of Incidents

MoDOT's more than 250 dynamic message signs are testing a new way to get motorists' attention by using flashing text. When there are incidents or work zones with lane closures on the interstates, MoDOT's Transportation Management Centers display flashing warning messages on the dynamic message signs. These messages include information warning motorists of the incident or work zone, what lanes are closed and either alternate routes or potential delay information.
