This project contributes to the four-lane widening of Highway 65 between Clinton and Harrison. 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 65 from Maxie Camp Road in Boone County to Highway 123 in Newton County has been separated into two phases. Maxie Camp Road to Highway 206 is expected to be completed in Phase 1. The remainder of the project from Highway 206 to Highway 123 remains a high priority for the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department and will be constructed in Phase 2 as funding becomes available.
