Overview

These projects contribute to the four-lane widening of Highway 64 between Wynne and Marion. 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 64 from the Cross County Line to Highway 147 in Crittenden County has been separated into two phases. Job CA0101 County Road 375 to Highway 147 will be completed in Phase 1. Job CA0103, the remainder of the project from the Cross County Line to County Road 375, remains a high priority for the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department and will be constructed in Phase 2 as funding becomes available.
