Second Entrance to Crossing – Construction Contract

Crossing Circle North

 

Spring Hill has authorized the Mayor to sign a construction contract for the Crossings Circle North Bridge. This new bridge will provide a much needed second entrance into the Crossings, greatly enhancing safety for everyone.

 

Construction is expected to last 9 months, meaning the bridge is likely to be open in time for the Christmas shopping season of 2019.

 

This project is being completed about $120,000 under budget.

Updated Major Thoroughfare Plan

MTP 2019

Previously completed in 2015, modified in 2017 and now updated in 2019.

 

The Major Thoroughfare Plan (MTP) maps out the long term needs of Spring Hill’s major road way needs. The MTP has allowed the Planning Commission to plan for right of way dedication and new roads construction to be completed at developers expense; speeding improvements to the City’s roadway network at a lower cost.

 

The Transportation Advisory Committee has recommended the updated MTP. The Planning Commission will be voting to adopt the new MTP in March 2019.
