After 37 years in business the Springfield Skateport is shutting down, but not because it's going out of business.
Traffic safety concerns in the area has led MoDot to purchase the building in order to expand South Glenstone into six lanes.
They say it will help ease the flow of traffic onto James River Freeway.
Skateport owners say they wish there were a better way.
