Streets and Sidewalks



There are many factors that go into assessing the needs and upgrades for City infrastructure. Public Works staff conducts objective condition ratings of all the streets and alleys in the City every two years. Sidewalk programs are assembled based on objective investigation and evaluation of resident requests (called in and emailed), compiled in Cityworks – the City’s project management system - throughout the year, as well as targeted areas from the City’s Pedestrian Accommodation Plan. Recommendations made to public officials are based upon these inspections and condition assessments.

Below is the plan for the City of Springfield’s Fiscal Year 2021 infrastructure improvements which is March 1, 2020 – February 28, 2021. These plans are staggered over the fiscal year and are dependent on weather and resources. If you have questions about this year’s program, please contact Public Works at 217.789.2255 or email public.works@springfield.il.us.
