Ever since Springfield Avenue closed for reconstruction and expansion, we've been looking forward to the day when those orange barrels were removed.

Tuesday was that day. At 2 p.m. the road was officially opened.

Motorists will notice too that it's been widened to four lanes. Work was needed to accomodate the new Lowe’s Distribution Center next to Springfield.

Hundreds of workers will use it to access the multi-million-dollar facility.
