Highway Department announces route for Fayetteville-Rogers corridor

Posted By on Fri, Jan 18, 2013 at 11:55 AM

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department has announced a route for a new north-south highway corridor linking Fayetteville and Rogers along the eastern edges of the cities.

Release:

The preferred alignment will extend Highway 265 north from Highway 264 to Highway 94 using a combination of improvements to existing routes and construction on new location. It will begin at Highway 264 and continue in a northern direction along Old Wire Road. At Frisco Cemetery Road, the alignment will continue north on new location until it connects with South First Street. The alignment will then continue north along South First Street and end at Highway 94 (New Hope Road) in Rogers.

It’s the culmination of extensive planning and environmental studies that began in 2009. The criteria used for designating the preferred alignment included cost effectiveness, the overall impacts, and public input.

“The purpose of the proposed project is to improve north-south connectivity and enhance mobility for travelers in the Northwest Arkansas metro area,” says Highway Commissioner Dick Trammel.

After further survey and design work is complete, a Design Public Hearing will be held to share details on the design and proposed right of way limits, and to receive additional public comment on the proposal.

A copy of the Environmental Assessment and the project location map are available for viewing in the Recent Public Meeting Section of the Department’s website at ArkansasHighways.com.

Here's a map of the route.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
