Fayetteville Officials Seek 71B Corridor Input

News

The City of Fayetteville wants to hear your thoughts on the designs for the planned 71B Corridor project.

The project aims to make biking and walking safer along the corridor.

The city is asking for input on the designs through January with the final plan expected to be presented in Spring 2019.

“In addition to functioning as an economic development hub for the city, they want it to function as a place that people actually enjoy going and actually enjoy staying,” said Andrew Garner, state planning director with the City of Fayetteville. “So, i think a big thing that we’ve heard from people is that they wanna make it just a unique area that’s unique to Fayetteville and not just a highway corridor that you drive through and try to get through as quickly as possible.”

Garner expects the project to take years to build, but is hoping construction will begin by the end of 2019.
