The Arkansas Department of Transportation sought advice from the community Tuesday on improving a Benton County highway.
The meeting in Bentonville Tuesday discussed the state of U.S. Highway 62/102 between State Highway 102B and State Highway 94 North.
The consultant team working with ArDoT talked to the public back in March to identify problems with the road, like safety and operation issues, then started testing improvements.
The purpose of the meeting was to get the public’s feedback on those improvements.
“We’re hearing a lot of positive feedback,” said Kip Strauss, project manager. “Certainly hearing the feedback that something needs to be done in the corridor, and they hope the sooner the better.”
Right now there is no identified funding for this corridor.
