The 30 Crossing project (Job CA0602) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program (CAP) that was approved by voters in 2012. It is being funded with the proceeds from the temporary ½-cent sales tax that is set to expire in 2023. The passage or failure of Issue 1 at the polls this November will have no impact on the 30 Crossing work that is beginning this fall, including the construction of a new Arkansas River bridge and improved access to both downtowns.
