TRAFFIC CONTROL

Springfield traffic is mostly kinda square, but a new project could change that. With construction now underway, the city is about to get its first roundabout intersection [see “Going ’round and ’round,” by James Krohe Jr., Dec. 3, 2009, at illinoistimes.com].

As part of the Capitol Avenue Beautification Project, crews are now working to construct a roundabout intersection at Capitol Avenue and 12th Street.

Exciting? Yes, but no need to jump in the car for a quick drive by – you can watch the work in progress from your computer.

Hansen Professional Services Inc. and Springfield School District 186 have partnered to install a temporary Internet video camera at nearby Lincoln Magnet Middle School, where students will use the feed to learn about construction and 3-D geospatial mapping.

Earlier this week, the intersection was closed off with crews working away to remove the existing roadway. But don’t take our word for it; see the action with your own eyes by visiting www.springfield.k12.il.us/schools/lincolnmagnet.
