Improvements to a 1.02-mile stretch of Springfield Avenue are expected to begin this spring.

The board of aldermen this week approved awarding a contract to K.J. Unnerstall Construction Company, Washington, for the work, which includes repairing sidewalks, removing curbs and installing ramps, as well as adding 5-foot sidewalks where there currently are none.

The sidewalk on Springfield at Oak Street also will be widened and the road will be resurfaced.

MoBikeFed comment: This type of routine sidewalk infill project has been all too uncommon in Missouri over past decades--but is rapidly becoming routine across Missouri communities large and small.
