Project description: The 11,500-square-foot center will house both Springfield and Missouri Department of Transportation engineers and technicians and serve as a backup emergency management center, said Jason Haynes, co-interim city traffic engineer, who describes the building’s design as “operations concentric.” An 1,874-square-foot operations room will house three large projection TV screens and seven operator work stations, Haynes said. A glass wall between the operations room, a training/war room and two engineer offices will allow city and state staff to view situations as they are happening and respond quickly, he said. The project is funded with $1.5 million in federal earmarks and the remainder shared by the city and state.
