What is the Connecting Arkansas Program?


The Connecting Arkansas Program (CAP) is one of the largest highway construction programs ever undertaken by the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD). Through a voter-approved constitutional amendment, the people of Arkansas passed a 10-year, half-cent sales tax to improve highway and infrastructure projects throughout the state. Thirty-five projects in 19 corridors will improve Arkansas' transportation system by expanding selected two-lane roadways to four-lane highways and adding new lanes to identified interstate highways.

Have Questions?


How is the Connecting Arkansas Program funded?

The $1.8 billion CAP receives revenue from a temporary half-cent sales tax that will end after 10 years when the bonds are paid off. On November 6, 2012, Arkansas voters approved Ballot Issue #1 in the general election, a constitutional amendment that finances the widening of state highways that are needed and required funds to complete.

Is the half-cent sales tax permanent?
No. The temporary tax will last until 2023 and will be abolished when the 10-year bond issue is paid off.

Who pays the tax?
The temporary tax is shared statewide by consumers and road users. Taxes are not raised on groceries, medicine, or gas.
