More traffic problems because of Springfield's aging infrastructure, this time on Monroe Street.
Beginning Tuesday, the Office of Public Works will begin work to repair a sewer cave in on eastbound Monroe Street at MacArthur Boulevard.
Traffic on Monroe near MacArthur will be closed as well as pedestrian traffic on the sidewalk.
The closure is expected to last a week, weather permitting. Motorists are asked to utilize marked detours.
Disregarding “Road Closed” or “Do Not Enter” signs could land you a $250 fine.
