NWA Democrat-Gazette/FLIP PUTTHOFF Officials are considering adding a second right turn lane from Southwest Regional Airport Boulevard on to South Walton Boulevard.

The traffic waiting to turn right on to Southeast Walton Boulevard from Southwest Regional Airport Boulevard will have a shorter wait after an additional turn lane is added, said a city transportation official.
