Crossover Widening Could Begin Soon

— Road construction on Crossover Road between Mission and Joyce boulevards could begin in the next two to three weeks.

Nabholz Construction Co. submitted the apparent low bid Wednesday to build the 2.2-mile widened section of the road, which is also known as Arkansas 265. The project will widen the road from three to four lanes with a raised median.

Nabholz’ bid of $12.6 million will be reviewed by the Arkansas Highway Commission within the next day or two, said David Nilles, a spokesman for the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department. Nilles estimated work would progress within three weeks once the commission approves.

The project is expected to be complete in late 2013.

Utility relocation work on both sides of the highway has been ongoing for a month. The project bid Wednesday involves the construction of the road itself.
