Fayetteville intersection could get traffic light, overhaul

Posted: December 29, 2017 at 1 a.m.

NWA Democrat-Gazette/CHARLIE KAIJO Cars pass by Thursday on the corner of Arkansas 112 and Howard Nickell Road in Fayetteville. The city is considering partnering with Washington County to to improve the intersection.

FAYETTEVILLE -- No turning lanes from a state highway near a residential area means crowded mornings and most likely coming home late. City and county officials hope to alleviate that on the northwest edge of town.

Intersection improvement

A grant would cover a traffic study, design, environmental clearance documentation and traffic signal design. If approved, based on the total estimate of $350,000 for engineering services:

• The federal aid portion will be $280,000 (80 percent).

• Fayetteville’s portion will be $35,000 (10 percent).

• Washington County’s portion will be $35,000 (10 percent).

These numbers are subject to change as the project is developed and more detailed estimates are provided.
