This project proposes to enhance one of the most traveled roads in Arkansas. When complete, the improvements will enhance the transportation connection through central Arkansas, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.
Draft Environmental Assessment and Public Hearing
Progress continues in preparing the draft Environmental Assessment. The following documents will be included in this report and will be made available for public review prior to the next public hearing. A public hearing is currently anticipated in mid 2018.
In May 2017, the Arkansas Department of Transportation (formerly AHTD) issued notice that it was seeking Statements of Qualifications from firms desiring to design and construct the project. The SOQs were submitted at the end of June 2017, and ArDOT short-listed three parties in connection with the procurement for the Design-Build Procurement contract in September 2017. A Request for Proposals is expected to release in mid 2018. A Design-Build contract is anticipated to be executed at the end of 2018 with construction beginning in 2019.
