Benton County can expedite its road program as long as the county keeps the recently approved 1/2 cent sales dedicated to road work.

At A Glance

County Roads

Benton County’s proposed 2013 road plan calls for the county to do 60 miles of paving for $1.7 million. County officials are eying a plan to add more paving and bridge repair work to the annual schedule by using county reserve funds to supplement the county’s share of the proceeds of the 1/2 cent sales tax approved by voters in November. Officials say the list of roads and bridges scheduled for work will be posted on the Benton County website at www.co.benton.ar.us.
