Main Street lane closure begins Monday, February 8 —

Removal of three trees will result in lane closures on Main Street at 15th Street beginning Monday, February 8, according to Springfield Utility Board officials. SUB anticipates the work will be completed by Thursday, February 11. Main Street will be down to one lane between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. At times, all traffic will be stopped briefly to safely accommodate work being conducted directly over the street.

Officials advise motorists to use alternate routes during this time to avoid traffic delays.

SUB is working with the Oregon Department of Transportation on the project, which includes removal and subsequent replacement of the trees.

SUB is a community-owned electricity and water provider serving more than 50,000 people in Springfield, Oregon and surrounding areas.
