Southwest Arkansas Progress

 

 

A ribbon cutting was held on April 30th to open the Eastern Loop around Texarkana from Hwy. 549 to US 71 North (future I-49). The Doddridge Connection (4.4 miles extending Hwy. 549 from Doddridge to the Louisiana border) is funded and under construction, to be completed late 2014. This will connect I-20 in Shreveport to I-30 in Texarkana. Hwy. 549 will then be renamed I-49!

NWA planners apply for BUILD grant to pay for I-49 gap between AR/MO

The NW AR Regional Planning Commission has once again applied for federal funding to complete a 4.8-mile segment of Interstate 49 in Missouri to the state line. The segment is the only portion of the 18.9-mile Arkansas/Missouri Connector, or the Bella Vista Bypass, that doesn’t have the needed funding identified to complete the project.
