The 2,700-foot section of the Galloway Creek Greenway Trail from Sequiota Park south to Republic Road will be replaced this winter with new 8- to 10-foot-wide concrete surface compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. The new trail will follow the same trail alignment and will require no tree removals.
The project will require a 60-day closure of this section of trail. The reconstruction project will be funded primarily through a federal Surface Transportation Block Grant with a 20% required local match.
The Galloway Creek Greenway Trail is the highest-used section of trail in the City and continues to grow in popularity, connecting neighborhoods and businesses to the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, Springfield Lake, and Pershing elementary and middle schools.
