A variety of lane closures can be expected by Springfield drivers on Fremont Avenue as City Utilities begins work to prepare for the anticipated 2020 expansion of Fremont.
CU says drivers can expect one southbound lane to be closed for at least four weeks in different segments as crews place new poles. The closures will only happen during daytime hours and no businesses or residences will be blocked off during the construction.
The 2020 expansion of Fremont will widen the road to five lanes between Battlefield and Sunset. The Battlefield Road and Fremont intersection will be expanded with additional turn lanes and improvements to the traffic signals.
The project, funded through the 1/4 cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax, will also add new sidewalks along Battlefield and Fremont.
