Fort Smith/River Valley is not against I-49. It would be great for Chaffee Crossing.

The newest Highway Commissioner is from Lavaca, surely a big part of his selection was to keep the emphasis on I-49

Very possible, but Philip Taldo is also from NWA.

It'll be interesting to see who the next governor is. NWA has enjoyed great newfound access in LR under Asa

There appears to be a delay (SURPRISE! --NOT!)

https://talkbusiness.net/2020/01/bella-vista-bypass-project-cost-rises-by-7-million-fayetteville-interchange-delayed/

No delay in I-49 Bella Vista Bypass.

The delay is with a set of ramp upgrades in Fayetteville.

The $7 million bump by MoDOT is because when they benchmarked the project against recent like builds nationally, they had underestimated certain  material costs. By bumping up the total allotted, this will ensure the bids don't exceed the budget.
