SPRINGFIELD (Dec. 9, 2020) – City of Springfield officials are working with the contractor to revisit the North Belmont Avenue reconstruction project after a test of the roadway returned subpar results.
“What exists now is not the finished product that we expected,” said Springfield Service Department Director Chris Moore. “We are working with the contractor to have the roadway corrected to meet the specifications.”
Work on North Belmont Avenue began last year. City officials discovered a problem with the asphalt last month and requested the contractor perform a test on the roadway, which failed to meet specifications.
City officials hope to have the contractor back to work on the project in spring of 2021 to remedy the problem at no additional cost.
