Springfield are going to renewal road work tax this year for 2009 to 2012 Projects.
Here what I heard about improvements:
WIden 65 HWY 4 lanes to 6 lanes, in two phases from Battllefield to Sunshine Street and Sunshine Street to Chestnut Expressway (Which I think this funds come from Springfield, MoDot statements (2009-2013) that might widen 6 lanes I-44 to Ozark which would pay whole north hwy and south hwy to Ozark)
As you know about this Interstate 44 and Kansas Expressway Interchange Improvements which is part of this project.
"Diverging diamond" model on National Avenue, and construct an tunnel under National access to the CoxHealth emergency department. (A tunnel under national? One of my eyebrow raised when I read that "beneath" the National road)
James River and Campbell Avenue interchange improvements (Phase I).... (Wait, Phase I? Is there another phases?? hmmm interesting... I hope they're part of Republic road too!)
Add left-turn lanes and through lanes for traffic on Campbell under the James River Freeway. Also conjunction with new retail development at the southwest corner of the interchange.
There are couples other projects too, which is not really big change on roads. So only these roads i put up there are BIG changes. I gotta to let my mom know about National and James River Freeway, so my mom won't go confused about "diverging diamond".
