SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Two heavily used roads in Springfield could be getting a major makeover.
Travelers depend on Main St. and McVay Hwy. to get to the downtown area or to LCC. As the population grows and as development in the Glenwood area continues, the city is studying both roads in order to find ways to make travel more efficient.
“We want to see if we can improve that route in terms of overall travel times from beginning to end and make it more efficient for buses and also cars,” says Springfield Transportation Planner David Reesor.
The study is in its very early stages, so all options are on the table. The city will meet with the stakeholder advisory committee throughout the year to come up with the best system. They hope to have a plan drafted by next summer.
On Tuesday leaders will meet at City Hall at 3 p.m. and the public is invited to listen in.
