FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- A project worth more than $4 million, is officially underway in Fayetteville. The groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday was just the start of what's to come for construction on Van Asche Drive. The project will eventually connect Garland Avenue, also known as Hwy 112, and Gregg Avenue through improvements to Van Asche Drive. "This is the beginning of a major project that lasts about 15 months to construct a brand new road across empty fields to connect up Gregg and 112 to allow traffic to flow much more easily back and forth east and west," says Jeremy Pate, with the city's development services. "We've been looking at this project for quite some time." Some of the upgrades include widening parts of Van Asche Drive to four lanes. This project is funded by the transportation bond fund.
