Springdale officials make move to ease traffic congestion


A new flyover could help ease traffic congestion in Springdale.

The City Council approved a $14 million project to connect Har-Ber Avenue and Emma Avenue by adding a flyover bridge over Interstate 49 to meet with Emma at Gutensohn.

“It really has the potential. I think it will relieve a lot of traffic on both Elm Springs Road Interchange and on Highway 412. I think it’ll be a very important project,” said Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse.

Sprouse said the project will also include a sidepath for cyclists and joggers.
