BELLA VISTA -- The traffic circle near the Bentonville and Bella Vista border is expected to be out of use and traffic patterns shifted to accommodate highway construction.
A news release issued by the Arkansas Department of Transportation stated the department intended to have the traffic shift complete Monday night, weather permitting.
Southbound traffic on U.S. 71 will continue directly onto Walton Boulevard, and highway users will need to turn left at a new traffic light.
Northbound traffic on Walton Boulevard will go straight onto U.S. 71 and northbound Interstate 49 and Walton Boulevard traffic heading to Arkansas 540 will need to head to the traffic light at Peach Orchard Road and detour south.
The news release urged the public to be cautious and watch for slow-moving traffic in the construction zone, and crews are expected to use signage, message boards and barrels to control traffic and advise of additional temporary detours.
