A three-mile stretch of two-lane road isn’t the end of 20 years of planning for the Bella Vista bypass, Highway Commissioner Dick Trammel said. It’s just the beginning.
The three-mile stretch of roadway being built around the Benton County community of Hiwasse will be constructed as a controlled-access highway with no driveways or stop signs and interchanges on both ends of the project. While only two lanes of the roadway will be paved initially, the project is designed for eventual expansion into an interstate highway level road.
