This project contributes to the four-lane widening of Highway 82 between El Dorado and Texarkana. When complete, the additional lanes will enhance the transportation connection between the cities, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.
The proposed project to widen Highway 82 from Highway 98 to Highway 79 in Columbia County has been separated into two phases. County Road 27 to Highway 79 is expected to be completed in Phase 1. The remainder of the project from Highway 98 to County Road 27 remains a high priority for the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department and will be constructed in Phase 2 as funding becomes available.
