Chestnut Expressway traffic just west of Route 65 in Springfield is set to be shifted to a temporary bypass beginning the night of Thursday, Jan. 19, to make way for a new railroad bridge.
The result will be increased congestion on Chestnut Expressway while the bridge is under construction. Drivers are asked to find alternate routes until November 2017. However, access to all businesses will remain open in the area.
