Battlefield Road Bridge Over Route 65

Demolition Rescheduled for March 1-2

Springfield, Greene County- Plans to close Battlefield Road at Route 65 and Route 65 underneath Battlefield Road on Sunday into Monday, Feb. 22-23, has been RESCHEDULED for the weekend of March 1-2 due to weather, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

After closely monitoring weather forecasts for February 22-23, contractor crews determined that it would not be safe for workers or for the traveling public to proceed with tearing down the south half of the Battlefield Road bridge over Route 65 during the coming weekend. 

The work has been RESCHEDULED for 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, March 1, until 6 a.m. Monday, March 2. 

Traffic Impacts During Bridge Demolition:

During the March 1-2 closing, Battlefield Road over Route 65 will be CLOSED.  Drivers may use Battlefield Road on either side of Route 65 to reach businesses, but they will not be able to cross the bridge during the demolition.

Route 65 will be CLOSED underneath Battlefield Road during the demolition with Route 65 traffic routed over the ramps at the Battlefield Road interchange.

No right turns will be allowed onto or off of the ramps at the Battlefield Road/Route 65 interchange.  The ramps will only be open to Route 65 through-traffic.

A signed detour is posted directing drivers to use Battlefield Road to Ingram Mill Road to Sunshine Street to Route 65 on the west side of Route 65.  Another detour will direct drivers from Battlefield Road to Blackman Road to Sunshine Street to Route 65 on the east side of Route 65.
