Meeting on 3/5.  About several years overdue, but glad it's finally moving forward.  Only the stretch within Fayetteville city limits, but a highly congested stretch.

MikieTimT:
Went to the open house and saw the presentation materials.  Below is the overall project map.  Looks like they are putting in 2 multi-lane roundabouts.  One at Garland/Van Ashe to replace the traffic light there and one at Howard Nickell Rd.  Howard Nickell Rd. gets severely backed up with traffic turning north on 112, so despite my dislike for multi-lane roundabouts, it should help that situation.  The state is doing this project in exchange for offloading 71B/College Ave. onto the City of Fayetteville.  There will be sidewalks/bike lane and a bike/ped. tunnel under the Garland/Van Ashe roundabout.  Supposedly starting 2021 with 2022 completion.

I have moved from that area, but wasn't a western cooridor envisioned for AR 112?

bjrush:
Why are there turn Lanes on both sides of Cris Hollow Rd? The turn to the South would go nowhere unless there is a plan to extend it in the future

Tomahawkin:
@M86. Same here, I thought SR 112 would have been widened west of 49 and would extend with 5 lanes into Springdale and beyond running parallel to 49. That was an idea I had long ago as an alternate route to 49 in case of a nasty accident. Plus I thought that area was going to develop north of the Same Club????
