Trail to close in Bentonville
BENTONVILLE — Construction to widen Interstate 49 will require a section of the Arkansas Missouri Trail at Northwest Arkansas Community College to be temporarily closed.
The closing began Tuesday and is expected to continue through Friday, according to Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department officials.
Moving utilities will require closing the trail between Phyllis Street and the college campus.
Advance warning signs and barricades will be in place to communicate the trail’s closing.
The project is part of the agency’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening more than three miles of I-49 to three lanes in each direction. Construction is expected to be completed later this year.
