SPRINGFIELD (Nov.16, 2020) – The City of Springfield is holding an online public open house for the proposed improvements to South Limestone Street from Interstate 70 (I-70) to John Street. The goal of this virtual event is to provide the public the opportunity to learn about the project and provide comments to the City while maintaining safety during the pandemic.
The purpose of the South Limestone Street Reconstruction Project is to provide a safer transportation corridor that serves as a gateway to Springfield for pedestrians and motorists, while fostering economic development in the region. Crashes in the project area happen more often than on similar roads in Ohio with left turn and angle crashes being the most common.
The online open house, as well as other project information and the comment form, can be accessed at ljbinc.com/southlimestone from Nov. 16 to Jan. 12, 2021. The City of Springfield welcomes your questions or comments regarding the project. Comments are requested by Jan. 12 to ensure they may be considered in the project development.
Comments may be submitted by returning the comment form or by contacting City Engineer Leo Shanayda by phone, 937-525-5800, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by sending a letter to:
City Service Department
2100 Lagonda Ave. 2100
Springfield, Ohio 45503
Individuals who require special accommodations or translation or interpreter services to participate in this open house should contact Leo Shanayda no later than 15 calendar days prior to the end of the open house (Jan. 12, 2021).
The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated June 6, 2018 and executed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and ODOT.
