Public hearing scheduled for Kansas Expressway extension project

The Greene County Highway Department is hosting a public hearing for the Kansas Expressway Extension project. The public hearing will be held:

 

March 23, 2017

6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

In late 2015, the Greene County Highway Department started the next phase of the Kansas Expressway Extension project by conducting an environmental study along the future roadway corridor. The extension of Kansas Expressway has been planned for several years to provide an additional north-south roadway in southern Greene County that will improve traffic flow in the area. Current plans are to extend Kansas Expressway from where it currently ends at Republic Road for a little over two miles south to a connection with Farm Road 141 (Cox Road).

 

The public hearing will include updated information from the Environmental Assessment (EA), a chance for attendees to speak to specialists working on the project, an updated project timeline, and an opportunity to provide comments. Attendees are welcome to come and go at any point during the open house, no formal presentation will be given.

 

The EA document will be available for review and comment from March 7, 2017 – April 7, 2017. The EA will be available for review at: Greene County Courthouse, City of Springfield City Hall, MoDOT District Office – Springfield, The Library Center – Springfield, Springfield City Utilities, Christian County Courthouse, and City of Nixa City Hall. The document will also be available online at: https://greenecountymo.gov/highway/future_projects.php
